Ultrastructural Analysis of the Integument of a Desert‐Adapted Mammal, the One‐Humped Camel (Camelus dromedarius)
Together, these data indicate that while the camel is clearly adapted for a desert lifestyle, these adaptations do not include significant specializations at the cellular or subcellular level in the integument.
Regional histology of the subcutaneous tissue and the sweat glands of Large White Yorkshire pigs.
The subcutaneous tissue was less in the snout, dorsal nasal area and carpal regions as compared to the other regions under study for functional reasons and in these locations the musculature was in direct contact with the skin.

The basic histological structure as well as the epidermal ultrastructure of the camel nasal plane was observed to resemble very closely the common type.
FGF5 missense mutation is associated with dromedary hair length variation.
This study constitutes the first thorough exploration of the FGF5 gene in dromedaries with results that validate the association via genotyping the polymorphism in a large population of diverse camels and test the segregation of the identified variant with hair length in a pedigree.

Analysis indicated that Tsk in many regions can affect perspiration in camels, but it failed to demonstrate a topographic pattern in perspiration response at higher or lower Ta; therefore, the data attests that no specific relationship may exist between the topography of a perspiration pattern and the level of regional Tsk.
How the Structure of the Sweat Glands of Camel Symphonizes their Reliable Function
| It is well known that camels can live in severe environmental conditions and have ability to regulate its body temperature in such conditions. Previous studies indicated that skin is playing a
The histological characteristics, age-related thickness change of skin, and expression of the HSPs in the skin during hair cycle in yak (Bos grunniens)
The investigation reports the expression patterns of HSPs in yak skin for the first time, which suggests they may play different roles in yak hair follicle biology.
Fibrocartilage embedding hair follicles on the skin of the knee of the camel ( Camelus dromedarius ) : an ideal structure for its comfort

The habitual pronation of the camel (Camelus dromedarius) aroused the curiosity to specially study the histological structure of the padded knee-cap area on which the animal rests its massive body.
Immunohistochemical studies on the poll gland of the dromedary camel (Camelus dromedarius) during the rutting season.
The presence, location and degree of immunolocalization of microfilaments and intermediate filament systems: actin and cytokeratins (Cks) and also S100 protein were studied in the poll glands in sexually mature one-humped camels during the rutting season.


The morphology of bovine sweat glands and the effect of heat on the sweat glands of the Ayrshire calf
1. The normal sweat glands of twenty-eight calves, nineteen live adult cattle and eighteen slaughtered cattle from temperate breeds were examined. In every animal the lumen of the sweat glands
Body temperature of the camel and its relation to water economy.
The rectal temperature of normal healthy camels at rest may vary from about 34°C to more than 40°C. Diurnal variations in the winter are usually in the order of 2°C. In summer the diurnal variation...

Water balance of the camel.
Camels (Camelus dromedarius) were exposed to prolonged periods of water deprivation during winter, spring and summer in the Sahara desert to make determinations of weight changes, water and quality of life changes.
