  • SummaryThe chromatophore organs of Loligo opalescens are composed of five different types of cells: the chromatophore proper; radial muscle fibers; neuronal processes (axons); glial cells; and chromatophoral sheath cells.The surface of a retracted chromatophore is extensively folded, but upon contraction of the radial muscle fibers it becomes flattened and the folds of the surface disappear. The cell membrane cannot be responsible for the elasticity of the chromatophore as claimed by earlier… CONTINUE READING
