Young, adult and presumed old specimens of the tropical lizard Tropidurus hispidus, living in an almost steady warm habitat, have been the subjects of a 5-bromodeoxiuridine immunocytochemical study to label proliferating brain cells. All animals showed abundant 5-bromodeoxiuridine-labeled nuclei in the ependyma of their telencephalic lateral ventricles, with these being especially abundant in the medial cortex ependyma. Surprisingly, adult animals displayed higher numbers of labeled nuclei when… CONTINUE READING
