The present study was undertaken to investigate cyclic changes in the structure of oviduct epithelial cells, and the content of oviductal mucus in the Angora rabbit using light and electron microscopy. Ten female Angora rabbits, 5 of which were in the estrual stage and the other 5 were in the luteal stage of the estrous cycle, were used in the study. Tissue samples taken from the fimbria, ampulla and isthmus of the oviduct were examined under light and electron microscope. Ciliated cells were…

Histological Changes of the Ampullary Epithelium of Cyclic Albino Rat Oviduct: Light and Ultrastructure Examination
The present study was focused on the microscopic changes of the rat ampulla epithelium during the oestrous cycle and correlates the findings with their possible functions.
Structural study of uterine tubes of the rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) at different postnatal periods
Data revealed that the wall of uterine tubes in kittens was not fully developed, whereas in immature does, global histological and histochemical changes were identified compared to kittens while mature does indicated critical role of the post weaning period on the development of the animals.
Histomorphological and Histochemical Study of the Ovary and the Uterine Tubes of the Adult Guinea Pigs (Cavica porcellus)
The data showed the presence of many pre-ovulatory follicles during the diestrous period in this polyestrous species of guinea pig.
Pregnancy-associated structural changes of the fallopian tube of rabbits with special reference to interstitial Cajal-like cells
The structure of the fallopian tube showed histological changes during pregnancy that represented a functional conditioning to the pregnancy state as well as shed light on the morphology of interstitial Cajal-like cells (ICLCs) and their regional distribution.
Sex Steroid-Mediated Control of Oviductal Function in Cattle
Elevated periovulatory concentrations of estradiol (E2) and progesterone (P4) influence gene expression and morphological changes that have been associated positively to fertility in beef cattle, and prepare the oviductal lumen for interactions with gametes and embryos.
Morphological Study of the Reproductive Organsof Prepubertal Gilts
The co-existence of congenital or acquired changes present in the reproductive organs of gilts and sows affects dramatically the future fertility of the female, which increases the production costs.
The domestic livestock resources of Turkey: Notes on rabbits and a review of the literature
A comparative study with California and Line V rabbits showed the latter was heavier at birth and grew faster to 10 weeks, and opportunities lie in public and private support, genetic improvement for fibre for product diversification and increased incomes, improved marketing and niche markets for low cholesterol and low fat meat.

Histomorphological and histochemical study of the fallopian tube during pregnancy and post-partum of the cape hare rabbit (Lepus Capensis)
The Anatomical and Histochemical structure of uterine tube during period of pregnancy and postpartum in cap hare rabbits was investigated to find out the connective tissue that makes up the uterus and the structure of the lamina propriea-sub-mucosa was determined.


Oviduct acid mucus glycoproteins in the estrous rabbit: ultrastructure and histochemistry.
The production of highly acid mucus glycoprotein (apparently of the type that coast the ovum) is confined to the isthmus and, to a lesser extent, the mucosal crypts of the ampullary-isthmic junction; the ampulla is not involved.
Histomorphological Changes in the Oviduct Epithelium of the Rabbit During Early Pregnancy
During early pregnancy there is a selective modification in the histomorphological characteristics of the different regions of the rabbit oviduct, and there was an increase in the number of PAS‐positive cells in the isthmus during early pregnancy.
Cytomorphological changes in the rabbit oviductal epithelium after human chorionic gonadotropin treatment.
An electron microscopic investigation was performed to examine the ultrastructural changes occurring in the rabbit oviductal epithelium after human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) administration.
Significance of high glucose-6-phosphatase activity in rat oviduct epithelium.
The cytochemically examined glucose-6-phosphatase (G6Pase) activity in rat oviduct shows that the activity is high in secretory cells in the epithelium of CaI and UJ in the diestrous phase and suggests that the role of the high activity is to release glucose into the ovidUCT fluid for use by the embryo passing down the CaIand UJ to the uterus.
Sperm migration into and through the oviduct following artificial insemination at different stages of the estrous cycle in the rat.
The pattern of sperm migration into and through the rat oviduct varies with the stage of the cycle, being dependent on E2 and P4 and requires the combined action of both hormones.
Ultrastructure of the oviductal mucosa of the rat. III. Basal and peg cells.
In an E.M. analysis of the rat oviduct the authors report the morphology of the so-called indifferent basal cells and peg cells, which appear to be the morphological image of necrobiotic cells, either ciliatd or secretory.
Synthesis and secretion of sulphated glycoproteins by rabbit oviduct explants in vitro.
The results indicate that rabbit oviduct explants are capable of synthesis and secretion of specific sulphated glycoproteins in vitro and that there is a difference in the type and amount of secretion produced between the two Oviduct segments.

This work has shown that the structure and function of the oviductal secretory cells and their secretions in mammals are determined by the type of electron microscopic studies performed on these cells.
