Exposure of New Zealand Wiltshire sheep to long days, following 24 weeks of short days, caused a synchronised out-of-season wool follicle growth cycle. Skin biopsies were collected at intervals between 3 and 30 days and follicles were examined by light microscopy in both transverse and longitudinal section to describe the regressive (catagen), resting (telogen) and regenerative (proanagen) stages of the induced growth cycle. Follicles were generally in the growing phase (anagen) during short… CONTINUE READING
