Abstract

THE accompanying figure (Fig. 1) illustrates the membrana granulosa of the developing follicle of the mouse, from a preparation fixed with chromic acid and osmium tetroxide and stained with Mallory's connective tissue stain. As the darkly staining cells shown in particular at S.C. are not commonly stressed in descriptions of this tissue1,2, apparently because their presence is regarded as symptomatic of degeneration, it is desired to direct attention to some of their peculiarities.
