Cite article:- Radha B., Deivasigamani B., Ramanathan V. (2024). THE EFFECTS OF SYNTHETIC SALMON CALCITONIN ON THE HISTOMORPHOLOGY OF THE INTERRENAL IN THE BAGRID CATFISH MYSTUS GULIO (HAM). Indian Journal of Animal Research. 41(2): 111 - 115. doi: .
The histomorphology of the Interrenal (IR) of Mystus gulio showed hypertrophic changes 24
hours after the last injection of varying dosages of Synthetic Salmon Calcitonin (SCT). The
hypertrophic symptoms were increase in the size of the cells and nuclei and lighter staining of
the cytoplasm due to depletion of secretory granules. The nucleoli appeared conspicuous,
suggesting increased synthetic activity. These changes in the IR might be a direct effect of the
alterations in the calcium concentration in blood or a result of the dearth of ovarian hormones
consequent to ovarian atrophy.
