The present study was conducted to clarify the influence of feeding habits on regional distribution and relative frequency of endocrine cells secreting cholecystokinin (CCK), gastrin (GAS), serotonin (5-HT) and enteroglucagon (GLUC) in the nectarivorous Anoura geoffroyi and Glossophaga soricina...
Eggshells were randomly collected from turtle nests immediately after oviposition and at the end of incubation to examine the ultrastructural features using scanning JSM-5600LV microscopy. Three layers were recognized; an outer calcareous, a middle multistrata and an inner membrane. The...
The Spanish toothcarp Aphanius iberus is an endangered species which inhabits small rivers, creeks, salt marshes and marine salt pans in the Mediterranean coast of Spain. No differences in weights were observed among females or males taken from different environments. Analyses of the morphology...
Chronic exposure to ethanol may results in pathophysiologic changes in cellular function. The present work was designed to investigate the morphology of testis submitted to experimental ethanol ingestion. Experimental animals were divided into two groups. The control group ( n = 23) received a...
Odontesthes argentinensis was collected from Mar Chiquita Coastal Lagoon, the Southernmost coastal Atlantic Lagoon of Argentina. The morphology of the gills was analyzed by scanning electron microscopy. The morphology of the superficial structures of the gill filaments and pharyngeal region of...
An increasing number of evidence indicates that static magnetic fields (SMFs) are capable of altering apoptosis, mainly through modulation of Ca 2+ influx. Here we present data that suggest apoptotic-related gene expression as an alternative pathway, through which exposure to 6 milliTesla (mT)...
The present study analyzes the structure and the main proteins of reptilian claws. Mature claws are formed by two to four layers of keratinocytes, a transitional layer of spindle-shaped cells and a thick corneous layer. Transitional cells elongate and merge into a compact corneous layer that is...
A hydrogenosome is a hydrogen-producing organelle, evolutionary related to mitochondria and is found in Parabasalia protozoa, certain chytrid fungi and certain ciliates. It displays similarities to and differences from mitochondria. Hydrogenosomes are spherical or slightly elongated organelles,...
