Electron micrographs showing internalized polystyrene particles (arrows) in (a) troglitazone untreated and (b) troglitazone treated chciken FARM. Three and twenty partciles have been phagocytozed in (a) and (b) respectively. In (b) the particles are engulfed in irregular vacoules presumably an indication of enhanced destruction of internalized particles. The micropraphs were developed from ultrathin (80 nm) sections cut from blocks of epoxy resin embedded cell suspension. (×950)
