Ageing changes in the liver of two Poeciliid fishes, the guppy Poecilia (Lebistes) reticulata and the Amazon molly, P. formosa

, : Ageing changes in the liver of two Poeciliid fishes, the guppy Poecilia (Lebistes) reticulata and the Amazon molly, P. formosa. Experimental Gerontology 13(1-2): 37-45

Changes in the anatomy of the liver throughout life are described for two fishes, the guppy and the Amazon molly. There were few consistent and marked changes with age, other than an increase in lipochrome pigment in the guppy. Only in the livers of the two oldest females, which were senile and post-reproductive were there signs of alterations in liver cytology, which might have caused impairment of liver function.
