Investigations on the thyroid gland of embryonic larval and adult Ichthyophis glutinosus and Ichthyophis kohtaoensis (Gymnophiona, amphibia)

Abstract

Different developmental stages of two species of the genus Ichthyophis have been investigated. In the late embryo the follicular cells of the thyroid gland exhibit various degrees of cytodifferentiation. Well differentiated cells show a polar organization and contain numerous granular inclusions, but a colloid-containing lumen is rare. Most cells at this… (More)
