Abstract


The present study was undertaken on ten healthy adult sheep of local mixed breed of either sex to study the histomorphological, histochemical and micrometrical studies on the labial salivary glands of sheep. The labial salivary glands were of branched tubuloacinar type having loose irregular connective tissue and surrounded by myoepithelial cells. The parenchyma was comprised of secretory units (adenomeres) and ductal system. The adenomeres were of seromucous type with predominance of mucous acini. Histochemically, the mucous cells contained mucosubstances, glycogen, mucopolysaccharides, mucin and lipids while serous cells were negative to all these histochemical reactions.
