Morphology and Pathomorphology


The parietal cells of red-cheeked susliks were studied in summer and during hibernation. Electron-microscopic investigation and morphometric analysis revealed definite changes in ultrastructure during hibernation, reflecting the absence of secretory activity of the cells. No marked dystrophic changes were found in the parietal cells in this period. Structural differences determined by stages in the life cycle were preserved.
