Ultrastructural characterization of the epithelium that constitutes the cardiac gland epithelial `honeycomb' in the stomach of the babirusa (Babyrousa babyrussa) Koninklijke Maatschappij voor Dierkunde van Antwerpen
The cardiac gland region in the stomachs of eleven babirusa (Babyrousa babyrussa) from zoological collections was studied by scanning and transmission electron microscopy. An array of tightly-packed, thin-walled tubes, closely resembling a `honeycomb' covered this region. The tubes were between twelve and sixteen cells (200 and 260 mu m) in height and usually two cells (8-20 mu m) in thickness. Mucus granules present in the cytoplasm of cells in ...
Isolation of pregnancy-associated glycoproteins from placenta of the American bison (Bison bison) at first half of pregnancy. Koninklijke Maatschappij voor Dierkunde van Antwerpen
This paper describes the successful purification and characterisation of pregnancy-associated glycoproteins (PAG) extracted from placenta (3-4 months) of American bisons (Amb). Chorionic AmbPAG proteins were purified from foetal cotyledonary tissues (CT) and liquid cotyledonary-carrying proteins (LCP) leaking from damaged cells. Our protocols successfully indicated the usefulness of AmbPAG protein identification, especially from LCP fraction. ...
