SummarySweat glands from different representative areas of the horse have been studied in 6 animals with light microscopy and the intermandibular and coccygeal regions from 2 animals with electron microscopy. The sweat glands were numerous and well developed in all areas examined. The columnar cells, dominated by secretory PAS-positive diastase resistant vesicles, were surrounded by myoepithelial cells resting on a well developed basal lamina. The cytoplasmic organelles characteristic for cells… Expand
Cytochemical characterization of glycoconjugates in the apocrine glands of the equine scrotal skin.
TLDR
Glycoconjugates with vicinal diol groupings were present predominantly in the secretory vesicles, the Golgi apparatus, the surface coat of the plasma membrane, and the majority of the intracellular membranes. Expand
Ultrastructural Analysis of the Integument of a Desert‐Adapted Mammal, the One‐Humped Camel (Camelus dromedarius)
TLDR
Together, these data indicate that while the camel is clearly adapted for a desert lifestyle, these adaptations do not include significant specializations at the cellular or subcellular level in the integument. Expand
Equine sweating and anhidrosis Part 1--equine sweating.
TLDR
The glands are not directly innervated but are controlled by the interplay of neural, humoral and paracrine factors, including autocrine control not only of the secretory process but probably also of secretory cell reproduction, growth, and death. Expand
Carbonic anhydrase activity and sweat gland morphology in trained and untrained Standardbred trotters.
TLDR
The sweat gland undergoes morphological changes due to stimuli such as heat, exercise and training, but species differences are evident, as well as the influence of training on the morphology of the equine sweat gland. Expand
Equine anhidrosis: A review of pathophysiologic mechanisms
Anhidrosis is loss of the ability to sweat. The problem is seen in horses kept in a hot humid climate, and it may cause severe impairment of thermoregulation in the equine athlete. BritishExpand
Tracing oral Na+ and K+ in sweat during exercise and recovery in horses
TLDR
The flux of sodium into sweat does not have a active transport component, the flux of potassium into sweat is partially dependent on an active transport mechanism, and there is no evidence for paracellular transport. Expand

ELECTRON MICROSCOPIC OBSERVATIONS ON THE SWEAT GLANDS OF THE HORSE.
TLDR
It was shown by electron microscopy that the secretory epithelium of this gland consisted of two distinct secretory cell types, viz. the vacuolated cells and dense cells, which are both characterized by well developed microvilli. Expand
A cytological and cytochemical study of the sweat gland of the horse.
TLDR
The secretory tubule of the horse sweat gland consists of a single layer of columnar or cuboidal cells and a myoepithelium and a small amount of ribonucleic acid and only traces ofionic iron are detected in the cytoplasm of the former. Expand

SummaryThe secretory cells of human apocrine sweat glands are characterized by the presence of large mitochondria, which have scant cristae and an electron opaque matrix. Electron opaque granules,Expand
SECRETORY EPITHELIUM OF THE LARGE AXILLARY SWEAT GLANDS. A CYTOCHEMICAL AND ELECTRON MICROSCOPIC STUDY.
TLDR
The secretory cells of large axillary sweat glands from 12 normal adults were studied at the light and electron microscope levels, using techniques for localization of enzyme reaction product and an interpretation of the secretory process was attempted. Expand

TLDR
The apocrine sweat glands of cat and monkey have been studied by light and electron microscopy and secretory vacuoles arise from prosecretory vacUoles in the region of the Golgi apparatus and are liberated from the apical cell surface as in other merocrine cells. Expand
The distribution of glycogen and lipids in human skin.
TLDR
This study is based on specimens of human skin from the mons pubis, a region which abounds in coarse, growing pubic hairs, both eccrine and apocrine sweat glands and sebaceous glands, and the distribution and partial characterization of lipids in epidermal cells and in sweat glands. Expand
INFOLDED BASAL PLASMA MEMBRANES FOUND IN EPITHELIA NOTED FOR THEIR WATER TRANSPORT

TLDR
Epithelia noted for their water transport have been studied by electron microscopy with particular emphasis upon basal specializations, and it is apparent that the pattern of folding is quite distinctive in the different epithelia. Expand
The cytology of the large axillary sweat glands in man.
Several investigators have studied the influence of different states of gonadal activity on the cytology of the large human sweat (apocrine) glands. However, out of these observations has arisen noExpand
Some observations on the chemical composition of horse sweat
TLDR
Mucoprotein is accepted as a protein substance of which about 10% consists of hexosamine and attention has been paid particularly to the concentrations of protein and electrolyte in the sweats. Expand
Ultrastructure of the Kidney
TLDR
This well-edited monograph represents a scholarly compilation of observations relating renal ultrastructure and function and is valuable review sources of subjects considered in greater depth elsewhere. Expand
