Ultrastructural Studies on Harding-Passey Mouse Melanoma

By M. Seiji and N. Otaki


An electron microscopic observation of Harding-Passey mouse melanoma revealed that the melanoma consisted of a melanin producing cell, a melanin containing cell and a melanin forming and containing cell. Melanosomes were present in the melanin containing cell in the form of a melanosome complex which is now thought to be some sort of a lysosome formed by autophagy.
