The ultrastructure of the stimulated mouse thyroid gland

  • R. Ekholm


The ultrastucture of the thyroid gland in white mice maturing under normal laboratory conditions has been described previously (1, 2, 3). Certain cytoplasmic changes observed in cells from stimulated thyroid glands will now be presented. These findings are in many respects compatible with previous workers’ (4,5) observations which, however, owing to recent refinements in technique now require further penetration.
