Influence of thyroidin on the condition of the viscera of the white rat (as indicated by vital staining of the tissues)
- 7 Downloads
Experiments were carried out on male albino rats which were given 0.25 g of thyroidin per 100 g body weight for 10 days. Vital staining with neutral red was used to study the interaction between the tissues of the different viscera (spleen, lungs, liver, kidneys, heart, testes, brain, small intestine, and skeletal muscle).
In the animals receiving thyroidin there was a change in the sorptive property of the tissue of the liver, kidneys, heart, testes, brain, small intestine and skeletal muscle, which was thought to result from denaturation of cellular proteins.
The results obtained reflect the nature and specific features of pathological and compensatory reactions occuring in tissues under the influence of thyroidin.
