Fibrocartilage embedding hair follicles on the skin of the knee of the camel ( Camelus dromedarius ) : an ideal structure for its comfort
  • 2016
The habitual pronation of the camel (Camelus dromedarius) aroused the curiosity to specially study the histological structure of the padded knee-cap area on which the animal rests its massive body.Expand
ADAPTIVITY OF BUFFALO CALVES TO DIFFER THERMAL CONDITIONS
ight buffalo male calves, aged 6 months and average range weighed 118.00±2.6 119.25±2.2 kg were used in this study. The calves were divided into 2 comparative groups (A and B) with 4 calves each. TheExpand
Histomorphometrical Study on Regional Variation in Distribution of Sweat Glands in Buffalo Skin
TLDR
The sweat glands in buffaloes were of saccular and simple coiled tubular type and most of the sweat glands were associated with hair follicles and consisted of a coiled secretory portion (body) and a straight duct. Expand
High follicle density does not decrease sweat gland density in Huacaya alpacas.
TLDR
It is concluded that alpacas with high follicles density should not be limited for potential sweating ability, and that the finer-fibred animals had higher follicle density and more sweat glands than animals with thicker fibres. Expand
Microanatomy of the Fishing Bat Skin
TLDR
A comparison of the epithelial histology of fishing bats in different body locations (dorsum, abdomen, lip, intercrural membrane, wing, footpad and head) found two main types of external epithelia - glabrous skin and hair-bearing skin. Expand
Identification of hair follicle characteristics and activity of one and two humped camels.
TLDR
Large variations existed between individual camels in the percentage of inactive secondary follicles ranging from 7% to 74%. Expand
Seasonal hair follicle cycle of Camelus dromedarius.
TLDR
The annual changes in hair follicle activity, changes at the follicular level and to characterize some of the fibre-follicle characteristics of camels at different ages are identified. Expand
Light and Electron Microscopy of the Sweat Glands of the Dromedary Camel
TLDR
The sweat glands of the dromedary camel were present in all the regions studied except the lips, extemal nares and perianal region and there was no evidence that the gland was of the classical apocrine type. Expand

The hair follicle and apocrine gland populations of Zebu (Bos indicus L.) and Shorthorn (B. taurus L.) cattle skin.
TLDR
Skin samples taken from Shorthorn and Zebu cattle were used to determine the density of hair follicles and apocrine glands in the skin and the repeatability of the measurement of density was found to lie between 78 and 90 per cent. Expand
