Proliferative Activity of Corneal Epithelium and Specific Features of Morphogenesis in Postmetamorphic Rana arvalisNilss. in Urbanized Areas

Proliferative Activity of Corneal Epithelium and Specific Features of Morphogenesis in... The mitotic activity and sizes of corneal epithelial cells in postmetamorphic Rana arvaliswere studied in the populations exposed to different degrees of anthropogenic impact in the city of Yekaterinburg. The studies were conducted at the initial stages of frogs' terrestrial life in three consecutive years. Mitotic activity exhibited a slight positive correlation with the liver index, which indirectly reflects the general metabolic rate in young frogs. The combined estimation of proliferative activity, epithelial cell size, and relative liver weight had the highest information value. There was a relationship between the mitotic index and liver index in young frogs from habitats with the highest level of anthropogenic transformation. This indicates that morphogenesis is well-balanced and is likely to decrease the probability of morphological abnormalities in frogs developing in the unstable environment. This physiological property allows the populations to exist and reproduce in urbanized areas. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Ecology Springer Journals
