Pancreatic differentiation was studied using rotary histotypic cultures prepared from mice at different fetal ages. Pancreatic tissues were dissected and incubated for 6 days. The cultures were kept under constant rotation (70 rpm) and media were oxygenated every 24h. Pancreatic cultures prepared from 15 day-old mice showed histotypical differentiation of exocrine and endocrine cell populations, whereas those obtained from 17 and 19 day-old embryos revealed an important progressive reduction of the exocrine cell population, moreover, cultures prepared from 21 day-old embryos showed few and isolated exocrine cells. The results of the present study revealed three important features: a) Embryonic pancreatic tissue cultures develop histotypic exocrine and endocrine cell elements using the above described procedure; b) An interesting and unusual phenomenon was observed as shown by the permanence of the endocrine component with increasing embryo age; c) The intrapancreatic nervous cells demonstrate numerous end terminals containing clear neurotransmitter vesicles and dark neurosecretory ones.
