Fine structure of the abdominal epidermis of the adult mudpuppy, Necturus maculosus (Rafinesque)
The ventral epidermis of adult Necturus maculosus has been studied using electron and light microscopy and appears to be involved in the secretion of vesicular contents onto the outermost surface of the epithelium. Expand
Replacement of the Larval Basement Lamella by Adult-Type Basement Membrane in Anuran Skin during Metamorphosis
Ever since Gudernatsch (191. 3, 1914) proved that the mammalian thyroid gland contains an “ugerz~” which nil1 hasten metamorphosis when fed to amphibian larvae, biologists have been invtrstigatingExpand
Form and Function of the skin glands in the Himalayan newt Tylototriton verrucosus
The skin in the Himalayan newt T. verrucosus displays one mucus- and two poison gland types enwrapped by a myoepithelial sheath that is more prominently developed in the granular glands compared to the mucous glands. Expand
Histology and ultrastructure of the caudal courtship glands of the red‐backed salamander, Plethodon cinereus (Amphibia: Plethodontidae)
The first study on the fine structure and seasonal variation of CCGs is presented, using the plethodontid Plethodon cinereus, and the CCGs are similar histologically to sexually dimorphic skin glands described in some anurans, but more comparative work is needed. Expand
Morphological characterization of the glandular system in the salamander Plethodon shermani (Caudata, Plethodontidae).
The results strongly indicate that the secretions of both gland types from the dorsal as well as the ventral side form the adhesive mucus in Plethodon shermani, consisting of basic and acidic glycoproteins, glycoconjugates with mannose and α-L-fucose residues aswell as lipid components. Expand
New insights into vertebrate skin regeneration.
This review of past and contemporary accounts of wound healing in a variety of vertebrates, namely, fish, amphibians, and mammals, is analyzed to demonstrate how examples of skin regeneration in adult organisms can impact traditional wound-healing research. Expand
Cloacae, Cloacal Glands and Female Sperm Storage in Giant Salamanders
Information from a number of separate studies on histology of the cloaca and cloacal glands and ultrastructure of sperm storage, when it occurs, in the giant salamanders is brought together and summarized. Expand
Lumbar glands in the frog genera Pleurodema and Somuncuria (Anura: Leiuperidae): histological and histochemical perspectives
Skin of LGs presents characteristic features as the interruption of the Eberth–Katschenko layer and the presence of a differentiated type of gland only observed in macrogland and not previously described for Pleurodema or Somuncuria; this is termed lumbar serous gland. Expand
The shift from aquatic to terrestrial phenotype in Lissotriton italicus: larval and adult remodelling of the skin.
Investigation of the histological and cytological remodelling that occurs in the skin of L. italicus during metamorphosis revealed no substantial differences in the cellular composition of the skin between aquatic and terrestrial phases. Expand
