Basic and lectin histochemical characterization of bovine gustatory (von Ebner's) glands

, : Basic and lectin histochemical characterization of bovine gustatory (von Ebner's) glands. Anatomia Histologia Embryologia 26(3): 223-226

The Bovine tongue possesses numerous circumvallate papillae (8-16 each side). The troughs around the papillae are the openings of the ducts of the gustatory (von Ebner's) glands. In this study, we have characterized in situ the glycosidic composition of the secretion of bovine gustatory glands using traditional histochemical methods and lectin histochemistry with and without prior neuraminidase (sialidase) digestion. The lectin-horseradish peroxidase conjugates employed were: PNA, DBA, SBA, WGA, LTA, UEA I and ConA. Acinar cells show a diffuse positivity towards PAS and Alcian blue at pH 2.5 and the most intense and homogeneous lectin staining was obtained with PNA. This indicates that bovine gustatory glands secrete glycoproteins with 1,2-glycol containing hexoses and carboxyl-rich glycoconjugates and that galactosyl (beta 1-->3) Nacetylgalactosamine is the most frequent sugar residue present in these glycoproteins. Results were compared with data reported in the literature on the same glands of other species.
