Electron microscopy analysis confirmed the identity of Merkel cells

Merkel cell (Merkel-Ranvier cell) integumentary (skin) receptor cell connected with somatosensory afferents.

  • Ultrastructural analyses were carried out on cells from the enriched (Merkel cells) MC fraction.
  • Up to half of the cells presented features characteristic of MCs:
    • a polylobulated nucleus
    • numerous typical dense-core granules in a clear cytoplasm.

Scale bar 5 µm (Stain - Osmium)
