The characteristics of the mucous cells located in the gills of the fish Micropogonias furnieri were investigated. Using histochemical procedures that included methods for localization and characterization of glycoproteins (GPs), no differences were detected between the mucous cell contents of the primary and secondary lamellae. The GPs were identified with(More)
The histomorphological aspects as well as the histochemical content and distribution of glycoproteins (GPs) in the mucosa of the digestive tract of the anchovy Engraulis anchoita were studied. The buccopharyngeal cavity is lined by a squamous stratified epithelium with mucous superficial cells; the oesophagus shows two zones, cranial with a squamous(More)
Histochemical and ultrastructural studies were performed on lateral musculature from individual female weakfish (Cynoscion striatus Cuvier). Based upon SDH, PhR, Sudan and myosin-ATPase determinations, different kinds of red, pink and white fibres were discerned at the anterior, medium and posterior regions. Levels of glycolytic activity increased from red(More)
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 the gill arch was discussed and related to their functional(More)
The histomorphological aspects as well as the histochemical content and distribution of glycoproteins (GPs) in the mucosa of the digestive tract of the white croaker Micropogonias furnieri were studied. The buccopharyngeal cavity and the esophagous showed a squamous stratified epithelium with mucous cells. The stomach presented three portions: cardias,(More)
The ultrastructure of the primary and secondary lamellae of gills was investigated in a marine teleost, the white croaker. The following cells were identified and briefly described: pavement cells, mucous cells, mitochondria-rich cells and rodlet cells. These cell types are present throughout the length of the lamellae. They are studied by means of a series(More)
Histochemical and ultrastructural studies were performed on the lateral musculature from individual female whitemouth croaker, Micropogonias furnieri, at the anterior, medium and posterior regions. Based upon histochemical myosin-ATPase (m-ATPase) determination, diverse types of red, pink and white fibres were discerned. Red muscle had abundant mitochondria(More)
The physiological significance of the glycoproteins (GPs) secreted by the epithelium of ovarian lamellae is discussed in reference to the reproductive biology of G. blacodes. Histochemical procedures for localising and characterising GPs were used to determine the cytoplasmic components of cells of the epithelium that covers the ovarian lamellae of pink(More)
This study addresses the histomorphology, the histochemistry and the distribution of glycoconjugates (GCs) in the mucosa of the digestive tract of the weakfish Cynoscion guatucupa. The histological characterization of the buccopharyngeal cavity and the esophagus revealed that they are lined by a stratified epithelium where the mucosa is thrown into(More)
The histochemistry of glycoproteins (GP) in the mucous cells of the gills of the silverside Odontesthes bonariensis was identified with: (1) oxidizable vicinal diols; (2) sialic acid and some of their chain variants, carbon 7 ((7) C), carbon 8 ((8) C) or carbon 9 ((9) C); (3) sialic acid residues without O-acyl substitution and with O-acyl substitution at(More)
