The fine structure of the corpus luteum in Hyrax


Hyrax possess luteal cells with many ultrastructural features similar to those described in other mammalian species. The process of luteinization is gradual. Cells with increasing amounts of smooth endoplasmic reticulum become predominant in the developing gland. The luteal cells of Procavia and Heterohyrax show many ultrastructural similarities. In both species the corpus luteum persists throughout pregnancy.
