Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The epidermis of adult Rana pipiens has been studied by electron microscopy and histological and histochemical methods. It was found that the epidermis is engaged in the production of both keratin and mucus. The basal cells are mainly filled with tonofilaments, whereas the cells located in the mid-portion of the epidermis contain both tonofilaments and mucous granules. Golgi vesicles and endoplasmic reticulum are found in relative abundance in the mucus-producing cells and seem to be involved in the production of mucous granules. The mucus seen was partly retained within the cells and partly secreted into the intercellular spaces. The outermost keratinized cells contain mainly filaments and a few remnants of cell constituents.
