Abstract

The present study included the left and right adrenal glands of 20 Gohilwadi goat, age ranging from day old to adult. The samples were divided into three groups viz. group- I (day old to 1 month), group- II (>1 month to 6 months) and group- III (>6 months). The neutral mucopolysaccharide (NMPS) content was high in the inner aspect of capsule and moderate in the wall of large blood vessels. Zona glomerulosa exhibit weak PAS positive reaction in group-I and moderate in other two groups. Zona fasciculata showed moderate PAS positive reaction in group- I and II and weak in adult. The outer medullary zone showed weak and inner medullary zone showed moderate PAS positive reaction. The acid mucopolysaccharide (AMPS) content was weak in capsule and moderate in the cells of zona glomerulosa and zona fasciculata. A high AMPS content was observed in the cells of zona reticularis in adult. Moderate reaction for AMPS was observed in both the outer and inner zones of medulla.
