Tongue specimens were collected from 18 healthy adult Egyptian geese (Alopochen aegyptiacus) of both sexes. We measured and analyzed the whole, anterior, middle and posterior length and width of the tongue parts. The dorsal mucosal surface of each tongue was investigated by SEM. The length of whole tongue, widths at anterior and middle ends of its root(More)
Much attention is focused on environmental contamination by heavy metals. The heavy metal mercury is found worldwide and is ranked number 3 on the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act substance list. We examined the effect of low-level methylmercury exposure on central nervous system development of wild-type zebrafish embryos(More)
Although much attention has focused on environmental contamination by heavy metals, pesticides, and polychlorinated biphenyls, potential deleterious effects of naturally occurring organic compounds have received much less consideration. Saponins, which are glycosides found in many plants, are important, environmentally ubiquitous organic compounds. Saponins(More)
Gibberellin A3 is a plant growth regulator used in many countries, including Egypt, to increase the growth of fruits and vegetables. The carcinogenic effect of gibberellin A3 was investigated in this study with Swiss albino mice. Administration of gibberellin A3 by gavage for 22 months induced a significant increase in their body weights. Tumors were(More)
Alpha ecdysone is naturally present in the leaves of some plants, including the carcinogenic plant bracken fern (Pteris aquilina). Feeding mice with alpha-ecdysone at a dose level of 3 ppm/25 g body weight, 2 times per week for 22 months induced a significant increase in the body weight of the animals. Breast and lung tumors developed in the experimental(More)
UNLABELLED With 14 figures and 3 tables SUMMARY Each adrenal gland consisted of cortex and medulla that developed from different embryological origins and presented different cellular organization. One hundred male or female camel embryos or fetuses with crown vertebral rump lengths (CVRL) that ranged from 0.8 to 117 cm were examined. The adrenal cortex,(More)
Secretory concretions in mammary gland alveoli are commonly of microscopical size. However, some concretions reach clinically palpable dimensions and may occlude teat canals and obstruct milk flow. We studied secretory concretions in sheep, goat and cow mammary glands, using routine histological staining methods, conventional histochemistry and electron(More)
Tottering mutant mice carry a mutation in the pore-forming subunit (α1A) of CaV2.1 (P/Q-type) voltage-gated calcium ion (Ca2+) channels resulting in reduced neuronal Ca2+ current density. We assessed male tottering mice for spatial learning using the Morris water maze. Tottering mice performed worse than wild type mice, suggesting abnormal hippocampal(More)
