A Serial Section Study on Mice Langerhans Cell Granules After DNFB Painting
There are numerous ultrastructural studies on the cells containing Langerhans cell granules. And general features of Langerhans cell granules have been studied and reported with detailed description.1 The profiles of Langerhans cell granules were identified as discoid bodies with a focal vesicular expansion at the margin of the disc from three dimensional reconstruction.2,3 Our previous report4 also mentioned a three dimensional morphology of normal mice Langerhans cell granules.
