B Venkatesh, G Purushotham, D Pramod Kumar and KBP Raghavender
The present ultrastructural study was conducted in nine apparently healthy sheep irrespective of sex. The collected samples were preserved in 2.5% glutaraldehyde solution (PBS based EM grade) in 0.1 M phosphate buffer (pH 7.2) and were processed by standard protocol of Ruska Labs, College of Veterinary Science, Hyderabad. The present study revealed that the hepatocytes were arranged in the form of anastomosing cords which were surrounded by sinusoids with mean diameter of 6.5 to 8 µm and lined by pleomorphic kupffer cells with irregular surfaces due to the presence of filopodia and lamelliapodia was characteristic feature of the sinusoids of sheep.
