The survival, revascularization, reinnervation, and recovery of function of transplanted rat pineal glands were studied following grafting into four different locations in pinealectomized rats. Pineal grafts were well vascularized by fenestrated capillaries. Pinealocytes in the grafts maintained high-metabolic activity. More nerve fibers and terminals were observed in the grafts within the anterior chamber of the eye than in the third cerebral ventricle and the pineal region (in situ… CONTINUE READING
