LP18987-5     Lamellar bodies

DESCRIPTION
  Part: Lamellar bodies
  Description: Lamellar bodies (or keratinosomes or Odland bodies) are secretory organelles found in type II pneumocytes and in keratinocytes.

In pneumocytes, the choline-based phospholipids that are stored in the lamellar bodies, serve as pulmonary surfactant after being released from the cell.

In the stratum granulosum layer of the epidermis, lamellar bodies are released from keratinocytes into the intercellular spaces to form an impermeable, lipid-containing sheet that serves to form a water barrier.
