This work, based on Golgi impregnations, transmission electron microscopy and immunocytochemistry, demonstrates that the intermediate filaments found in the radial gliocytes of the adult newt spinal cord are both vimentin and glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) structures. Gliocytes appeared as large, arboreous cells, with appendages extending peripherally. They were extensively immunolabelled with both anti-vimentin and anti-GFAP monoclonal antibody conjugates.
