Intranuclear annulate lamellae in Ehrlich ascites tumour cells

  • F. N. Ghadially
  • E. W. Parry


Intranuclear annulate lamellae bearing a close resemblance to the nuclear envelope were found in a large number of Ehrlich ascites tumour cells. They appeared to arise from the inner membrane of the nuclear envelope only in the regions where the envelope formed invaginations or pseudoinclusions but not from the rest of the nuclear envelope. A close association between the annulate lamellae and the nucleolus was frequently observed.
