In mice with deactivated c-Maf gene only few Pacinian corpuscles are formed, and moreover these few are not intact.
Finally, we also observed 1 case with individual cells of the GCT within the outer layers of Pacinian corpuscle like structures (Figure 2, c and d).
Like sunglasses that filter out UV light and let the useful visible light through, the artificial fingerprints filtered out vibrations above and below 250 hertz, leaving only the vibrations that could be detected by Pacinian fibers.
However, some of the nerve endings, called Pacinian corpuscles, are relatively deep - about 2 millimetres - under the skin, raising questions about how they could detect such subtle vibrations.
The frequency range is significant because the embedded Pacinian nerve fibres are most sensitive to vibrations at 250 hertz.
