The primary cilium of telocytes in the vasculature: electron microscope imaging.

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

Bottom Line: The fine structure of the wall of blood vessels has been studied previously using the electron microscope, but the presence the telocytes associated with vasculature, a specific new cellular entity, has not been studied in depth.Interestingly, telocytes have been recently found in the epicardium, myocardium, endocardium, human term placenta, duodenal lamina propria and pleura.Here, the telocyte-blood vessels cell proximity, the relationship between telocytes, exosomes and nervous trunks may have a special significance.

fig07: TEM. Isolated secretory vesicle with exosome morphology (arrow) from telocyte was located close to endothelial cell. nt: nervous trunk; TC: telocyte; c: capillary.

Mentions: Sometimes, we observed small membrane vesicles secreted by telocytes into the extracellular compartment called exosomes (Fig. 7).
