Exogenous peroxidase is demonstrated in the sensory receptors of the duck bill skin. It can be found in the nerve ending (in lysosomes, coated and clear vesicles) and the surrounding cells of the corpuscles (in lysosomes and coated vesicles). These findings suggest a vivid metabolic exchange between the nerve ending and the non-neuronal elements of the peripheral sensory receptors.
