The xiphisternal cartilages of newborn, suckling, immature and adult guinea-pigs were divided into twelve regions in a study of their histology and intracellular lipid content. Histochemical methods were employed, and the observations quantified using a semi-automatic image analyser. In general, triglyceride content increases with age and is lower in… CONTINUE READING
