Telocytes (TCs) are a distinct cell type of interstitial cells
which have been recently described in stroma of various tissues and organs, such as placenta, [sup] endocardium, [sup] lung, [sup] parotid gland, [sup] skin, [sup] eye, [sup] myometrium, [sup] esophagus, [sup] liver, [sup] heart valves, [sup] vasculature, [sup] bone marrow [sup] , et al .

of Cajal (ICC) were first described as "neuron-like cells" at the motor neuron endings.[sup.1] The hypothesis was advanced by Thuneberg, who suggested that these cells had pacemaker activity in the intestine, as in the heart.

Our results show that the larval interstitial cell
system is extensively modified during metamorphosis to produce the adult pattern.
Focally, lipid accumulation also was seen in interstitial cells
The results of the present study in Balb/C mice showed that chronic administration of MPH can induce histological changes in testes depicted by diminishing the number of interstitial cells
