Identification of telocytes in the lamina propria of rat duodenum: transmission electron microscopy.

Cantarero Carmona I, Luesma Bartolomé MJ, Junquera Escribano C - J. Cell. Mol. Med. (2011)

Bottom Line: Telocytes are located in the lamina propria, immediately below mucosal crypts.Telopodes frequently establish close spatial relationships with immune cells, blood vessels and nerve endings.On the basis of their distribution and morphology, we suggest that these cells may be involved in immune response and in our opinion, it may be possible that different locations of telocytes could be associated with different roles.

fig05: Electron micrographs show details of telopodes (tp) from lamina propria of rat duodenum. Exosomes (arrowhead) emerge from telopodes in the interstitial space.

Mentions: Figure 5 illustrates the exchange of molecules between telocytes and the extracellular matrix or other cells in lamina propria; the shape of the telopodes seems to help this telocyte to deliver multivesicular bodies as exosomes.
