Elaunin fibres in the basement membrane of sweat gland secretory coil are rich in disulfide-groups

Abstract

Disulfide-groups of elaunin fibres of sweat gland basement membrane are demonstrated a) by thiosulfation/aldehyde-fuchsin staining or thiosulfation/Alcian Blue + 0.8 M MgCl2 staining, and b) by identifying SH-groups after reduction with sodiumthioglycollate. Elaunin fibres share this staining behaviour with "elastic fibre microfibrils" and with oxytalan fibres.

Cajal Bodies & Gems

Cajal bodies or coiled bodies are dense foci of coilin protein. Gemini of Cajal bodies, or gems, are microscopically similar to Cajal bodies. It is believed that Cajal bodies play important roles in RNA processing while gems assist the Cajal bodies. Find the latest research on Cajal bodies and gems here.
