Structure and behaviour of ultimobranchial gland in response to vitamin D3--induced hypercalcemia in male Clarias batrachus.

Abstract

Hypercalcemia was induced in Clarias batrachus by treating them with vitamin D3 (5,000 I.U./100 g body wt.) and/or 0.5% solution of CaCl2. The animals were killed on 1st, 3rd, 5th, 9th, 13th and 17th days after the initiation of the experiment. Histological preparations of the ultimobranchial gland (UBG) were made. The gland exhibits nuclear hypertrophy… (More)
