      Abstract

      • 1.
        1. Biopsies of ovaries from 12 women at term have been investigated for the histochemistry of their interstitial gland cells.
      • 2.
        2. The interstitial gland cells, which accumulate during gestation, do not store lipid or sterol granules. This suggests that the interstitial gland cells of gestation in man must be functioning for secretion rather than for storage of hormone precursors.
      • 3.
        3. The extensively developed cytoplasm of interstitial gland cells contains a well developed Golgi zone and numerous mitochondria. Both the cytoplasm and Golgi zone are rich in diffuse lipoproteins. The cells do not secrete any proteinous material as suggested by the meager development of RNA in their cytoplasm.
