The structure and function of thyroid C cells were studied in ovariectomized (Ovx) adult female rats without and after chronic treatment with estradiol dipropionate (EDP). A peroxidase–antiperoxidase method was applied for localization of calcitonin (CT) in the C cells. Morphometric changes in their volume, nuclei, and relative volume density were evaluated in comparison with sham-operated control rats using a stereological method. The number of C cells was calculated. CT content in the sera… CONTINUE READING
