Ultrastructure of neuro-spirocyte synapses in the sea anemone Aiptasia pallida (Cnidaria, Anthozoa, Zoantharia).

Abstract

Using transmission electron microscopy of serially sectioned tentacles from the sea anemone Aiptasia pallida, we located and characterized two types of neuro-spirocyte synapses. Clear vesicles were observed at 10 synapses and dense-cored vesicles at five synapses. The diameters of vesicles at each neuro-spirocyte synapse were averaged; clear vesicles ranged… (More)
