Observations of Age and Environmental Influences on the Thymus Kept in Tissue Culture
In our earlier examinations we have demonstrated the presence of Gomor-positive cells in the tissue cultures of thymus of Wistar CB rats of various ages. Besides Gomori-positivity, these cells gave positive PAS-reaction, too, and exhibited histamine and serotonine fluorescence. Tissue cultures of the thymi of older rats contained these cells in greater number. The influence of TSH increased the number of these, cells (4).
