Abstract
The distribution pattern of glycogen, alkaline phosphatase and acid phosphatase has been studied and recorded in normal and operated spinal cord of the Indian buffalo (Bubalus bubalis). Based on the observations, the following conclusions have been arrived at i) Glycogen is present in the cytoplasm and on the surface of the spinal neurons. Following injury, it is depleted from these sites. ii) Alkaline phosphatase is located in the nucleus and on the neuronal surface. It is not traceable at these sites following spinal cord injury. iii) Acid phosphatase is mostly confined to the neuronal cytoplasm and tends to increase in injured neurons.
