Effect of vinblastine on rat liver ultrastructure.
A single injection of vinblastine given i.v. to rats lead to the disappearance of microtubules, development of crystalline inclusions, dilation of Golgi sacculi, formation of multivesicular bodies and cytosegresomes as well as accumulation of lysosomes in the cytoplasm of liver cells. The endoplasmic reticulum and mitochondria do not seem to be affected. The question of whether or not these fine structural alterations are causally related has yet to be elucidated.
