OBJECTIVE The study was performed to analyze structural changes of the turkey pineal during the post-hatching development. MATERIAL AND METHODS The pineals were collected from male turkeys at the age of 1 day, 2, 8, 22, 56 weeks and subjected to histological investigations including morphometrical analyses. The pinealocytes were identified immunohistochemically using antiserum against hydroxyinolo-O-methyltransferase (HIOMT). RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS Independently of age, the pineal… CONTINUE READING
