Histochemical Studies on the Lung of Goat Foetuses (Capra hircus)
Keywords:Pranatal Lung, Histochemistry, Goat
The columnar lining epithelial cells of the developing airways were strongly reactive to glycogen and containedÂ glycogen granules at their apical parts in the lung of the goat fetuses in group-I. However, the reaction was diminished with
advancing age of the goat fetuses. Similar trend was seen in regard to neutral and acidic mucopolyssacharides. But the reactionÂ was reverse in regard to basic proteins as the reaction was gradually intensive in the columnar cells in older goat fetuses. In theÂ present investigation, fat particles could not be detected in anyÂ histocompartment of the lungs of all the goat fetuses.
