Example text

Microvilli and coated pits (arrows) are seen along the cell surface. ×35,000. single tubules. Also, extending from the free surface of the cell are numerous microvilli containing actin microfilaments (Fig. 1-17). The cytoplasm stains intensely, having an electron density about equal to that of the oligodendrocyte, whereas the nucleus has a similar density to that of the astrocyte. Microtubules, large whorls of filaments, coated vesicles, rough ER, Golgi-apparatus, lysosomes and abundant small, dense mitochondria are also present in ependymal cells.

When axons leave the CNS, they lose their neuroglial interrelationships and traverse a short transitional zone where they are invested by an astroglial sheath enclosed in the basal lamina of the glia limitans. The basal lamina then becomes continuous with that of axon-investing Schwann cells, at which point the astroglial covering terminates. Schwann cells, therefore, are the axon-ensheathing cells of the PNS, equivalent functionally to the oligodendrocyte of the CNS (see Ch. 4). Along the myelinated fibers of the PNS, each internode of myelin is elaborated by one Schwann cell and each Schwann cell elaborates one internode [30].

The many circular profiles represent tangentially sectioned fenestrations and alveolate vesicles (primary lysosomes). Two of the latter can be seen budding from Golgi saccules (arrows). Mitochondria and a dense body (secondary lysosomes) are also present. ×60,000. 8 PART I Cellular Neurochemistry and Neural Membranes FIGURE 1-7 A lipofuscin granule from a cortical neuron shows membrane-bound lipid (dense) and a soluble component (gray). The denser component is lamellated. The lamellae appear as paracrystalline arrays of tubular profiles when sectioned transversely (arrow).
