Abstract or Summary
  • Tissue obtained by punch biopsy from the antebrachial organ of Lemur catta has been studied with the electron microscope. This study describes the fine structure of the interstitial cells found between apocrine sweat glands in the antebrachial organ. These large polygonal cells are of three types: light cells, dark cells, and cells intermediate between these two types. The light cell contains a large vesicular nucleus, small tubular and vesicular elements of an agranular reticulum, numerous mitochondria with lamelliform or villiform cristae, microfilaments, and large aggregates of membrane-bounded particles. The dark cell has a dense, irregular nucleus, expanded vesicles of agranular reticulum, mitochondria with few cristae, microfilaments, and a large, hexagonal crystalloid of tubular structure. The intermediate cell is widely variable in appearance, containing usually expanded elements of agranular reticulum, mitochondria with both types of cristae, very dense aggregates of membrane-bounded particles, and occasionally a more or less developed crystalloid. Discussion is presented comparing the interstitial cell of the antebrachial organ with steroid hormone secreting cells, particularly the Leydig cell of the testis.
