Abstract:

Subcellular particles rich in noradrenaline have been obtained from homogenized bovine splenic nerves. After staining with phosphotungstic acid, the existence of granules 0.03 - 0.1 micron in diam was noted. A characteristic feature is the occurrence of notches, which often were extended to tail-like structures on opposite sides of the granules. Frequently the vesicles occurred in pairs and sometimes even in short chains. This is suggestive of a system similar to granular formation in the Golgi apparatus, which might mean that the granules are arranged in a type of lattice in the axon, and presumably in the terminals.
