The advanced teleost Chelon labrosus shows a well-developed organum vasculosum laminae terminalis (OVLT). Together, the vascular organization and ultrastructure have many similarities with those found in mammals, though it is somewhat simpler. To date, the dense network of fenestrated capillaries in the nervous parenchyma of the OVLT observed in Chelon labrous has not been reported in other fishes, and resembles the porta system of mammals. However, the OVLT does not present intraventricular… CONTINUE READING
