This investigation was aimed at the histological study of anterior corneal epithelium (ACE) of adult male ostrich Struthio camelus Linnaeus, 1758 (Struthioniformes). The total thickness of ACE was equal to 48.5+/-1.1 microm. The geometry of epithelial cells was investigated. The basal cells had columnar shape; their average height was equal to 21.4+/-1.8(More)
Only a few studies on the poultry skin microstructure have been carried out. The anatomical and histological reviews provide only general information, with emphasis on the structure of epidermis or its keratoid derivatives [1–3]. The derma and underlying layers remain little studied. The skin folds on the head and neck are relatively well-studied(More)
This work presents the results of the semi-quantitative evaluation of histochemical phosphatase activity in the sebaceous glands of the Kopetdag pine vole (Microtus socialis paradoxus Ognev et Heptner, 1928). The studies included the conversion of standard histochemical designations of enzymatic activity into digital analogues, allowing to evaluate the(More)
447 Many skin glands of animals are a source of various olfactory signals. On some skin areas, these glands increase in size and fuse to form large sebaceous acini separated by connective-tissue septa. An example of such glands is the specific midventral gland, which is characteristic of many rodent species. In the neck area, hair sebaceous glands increase(More)
In bowhead whales summering in Ulbanskiy Bay of the Okhotsk Sea, molting of epidermis has been found and histologically confirmed. The outer layer of the molting whale epidermis is longitudinally stratified and rejected in the form of relatively large plates up to several millimeters thick, each representing a lamellar formation consisting of longitudinal(More)
