Lampropholis guichenoti is an oviparous lizard that lays eggs with a calcareous outer shell. We used immunofluorescence microscopy to describe the occurrence and distribution of Ca2+ ATPase pumps in the uterus of L. guichenoti at different stages of the reproductive and egg-shelling cycles. Ca2+ ATPase pumps were not demonstrated by immunofluorescent techniques in any uterine tissue until egg-shelling had commenced and at least partly calcified eggs were in the uterus. During egg-shelling, Ca2… CONTINUE READING
