Immunohistochemical analysis of the interhemal membrane of the elephant shrew

, : Immunohistochemical analysis of the interhemal membrane of the elephant shrew. Gynecologic and Obstetric Investigation 46(1): 46-48

The placenta of the elephant shrew, an African insectivore, was examined histochemically to resolve the controversy surrounding the nature of its interhemal membrane. Immunohistochemistry suggests that trophoblast abuts the maternal blood spaces, and evidence of maternal capillary basement membrane is lacking. The mature placenta of these species is thus hemochorial. Earlier developmental stages would require examination to rule out the possibility of a preceding endotheliochorial condition.

Triplicate groups of mirror carp were reared with experimental diets containing practical ingredients with graded levels of monocalcium phosphate (MCP: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5%) for 8 weeks. Seventy carp weighing 18 g fish-1 were allotted in each tan...

The complete reaction sequence of the pentose pathway in vitro was studied by incubating [1-14C] ribose 5-phosphate with rat liver enzyme preparation and assessed by both the rate and extent of formation of the glucose 6-P product. The reactions f...
