Abstract

We report the new threadlike structures outside the blood vessels of mice. For this, we developed an in-situ searching method of the structure by vital staining with the dye of acridine orange and using a fluorescent stereomicroscope designed specifically for this purpose. We consider that the newly found threadlike structure might be rediscovery of the extra-vascular Bonghan duct which was reported in 1963 by Bonghan Kim.
