Identification and characterization of telocytes in rat testis

Figure 2. TEM photograph of a telocyte in rat testis. (A) The telocyte is located surround the seminiferous tubule (indicated by the arrow) and shows a distinct cytoplasmic process with a (C) podom containing mitochondria and the vesicles and (D) podomer.(B) The cell body contains small amount of cytoplasm with mitochondria around the nucleus. Higher magnification illustrates the rectangular area. Nu: nucleus; M: Mitochondria;Vc: vesicles; Pd: Podom; P: podomer. Scale Bar = A: 10μm; B: 2μm; C: 1μm; D: 2μm.
