Fig. 5. Regulation and function of cell types at the Xenopus tadpole epidermis: a model. SSCs constitute a novel cell type in the mucociliary epithelium of the Xenopus laevis tadpole skin. Serotonin is released in vesicles (green circles) and transported to MCCs by flow. Following release, serotonin modulates ciliary beat frequency via serotonin receptor 5-HT3.
