Abstract

The mesonephros is the first excretory organ to function during the chick embryo development; its nephrons differentiate between the 3rd and 6th incubation days (i.d.), and are active before their differentiation is over, since filtration by glomeruli and concentratioh by proximal tubules have been proved to be effective on the 5th i.d. (Chambers and Kempton, 1933; Romanoff, 1960; Friebovà-Zemanovà 1981; Friebövà-Zemanovà and Gonkä- revskaya, 1982; Narbaitz and Kapal, 1986). The mesonephros reaches the zenith of its activity on the 11th i.d., then it begins to degenerate being supplanted by metanephros or permanent kidnèy (Lillie, 1952; Salzgeber and Weber, 1966; Narbaitz and Kacew, 1978).
