In all species, the ID is located between the adenomere and the SD, receiving the primary saliva directly from the adenomere.
Some authors maintain that these ducts represent a population of undifferentiated cells that can become differentiated in cells of the adenomere or SD.
Adenomeres of mucous membrane of the uterine horns are generally of average size, as evidenced by the central modality location.
Inner and outer diameter of adenomeres in the left uterine horn is greater than in the right one by 40 and 10.4%, respectively.
For the digestive gland, the area covered by 15 adenomeres was calculated as described for the ovary and testis.
where CL = area covered with lipid droplets, CG = area covered with glycogen droplets, and AA = area of adenomeres.
One-way ANOVA was applied to detect significant differences in the diameter of oocytes, area of seminal tubules and adenomeres, and LI and GI in female and male gonads, digestive gland, and adductor muscle over time.
For the area covered by adenomeres, the largest extent occurred in winter 2006 (lipids) and autumn 2006 (glycogen).
