Contractile filamentous material in the pillar cells of fish gills.
The present study thus examines the ultrastructure of the pillar cells, particularly their apical microvilli and junctions, in the gills of Macrobrachium olfersii, a strongly hyperosmore-gulating, freshwater palaemonid shrimp (McNamara, 1987).
The effects of acclimation to the experimental media ([less than]0.5[per thousands], 21[per thousands], or 28[per thousands]) were evaluated morphometrically using as criteria the alterations induced in the thickness (in micrometers) of the intralamellar septal cells and the pillar cell flanges; and the height (in micrometers) and numerical density (as microvilli/micrometer of apical membrane) of the apical microvilli on the pillar cells.
