In addition, some cells exhibit the presence of submembranous pinocytic vesicles and scattered desmosome-like junctions; no definitive Weibel-Palade bodies were identified in the few cases examined.

Although previous studies have already shown neuronal profiles containing various types of vesicles in neuropiles of the central ganglia in the platyhelminths (Sukhdeo & Sukhdeo, 1990; Terenina et al., 2009; Leksonboom et al., 2012b), the present study failed to disclose any such neuronal profiles abutting on the immunopositive neurons and their proximal processes, or to disclose such aggregations of vesicles at submembranous sites of the immunopositive neuronal proximal processes on which another neuronal process abuts.
The CD20 positive B-cells were expressed in all 57 liver biopsies with a submembranous and membranous staining pattern (Figure 1).
The A type 'immature' particles about 87nm in diameter consisted of a ring-shaped nucleoid surrounded by a membrane and a submembranous electron-dense layer or shell.
The authors used immunoelectron microscopy to identify tight junctional proteins such as occludin, claudin-1, claudin-5, and submembranous ZO-1 after sonication.
