The study of lingual surfaces and the surface of interface epithelium-connective tissue of the tongue of Bradypus torquatus was performed by employing the light and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) techniques. The results revealed that the rostral part of the tongue presents a round apex and covered by filiform and fungiform lingual papillae and a ventral(More)
The characteristics of the interface epithelium-connective tissue of the lingual mucosa of Calomys callosus was studied by employing scanning electron microscopy after removal of the epithelial cells. In the anterior part, the connective tissue papillae of filiform papillae are distributed at random in their original configuration, and the round-shaped(More)
Ten male young adult gerbils Meriones unguiculatus weighing 55g were divided in two groups: experimental (n=5) animals submitted to exodontia of the left upper molars, and sham-operated were used as control (n=5) group. The aim of the present study was to investigate the ultrastructural effects of occlusal alteration induced by unilateral exodontia on(More)
The nerve terminals of intrinsic muscular fibers of the tongue of adult wistar rats was studied by using silver impregnation techniques, transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and high resolution scanning electron microscopy (HRSEM) to observe the nerve fibers and their terminals. Silver impregnation was done according to Winkelman and Schmit, 1957. For(More)
GnRH-associated peptide (GAP)-like immunonreactive elements located in the human hypothalamus were investigated by PAP immunocytochemistry using specific antiserum against [pro-GnRH (14-69) OH]. Immunoreactive neuronal perikarya were distributed in the MPOA, PVN and infundibular nucleus, with the largest numbers of GAP-like immunoreactive perikarya found in(More)
