Periodic Acid-Schiff-Positive Material and Alkaline Phosphatase in the Uterine Wall of the Pig during the Sexual Cycle

Article metrics

Abstract

FEW histochemical investigations of the uterine wall in pigs appear to have been made judging by the literature. Systematic investigations on variations during the sexual cycle in normal sows, or changes in different forms of sterility have therefore been started in this Department. In this preliminary report an account will be given of variations in periodic acid-Schiff-positive material and alkaline phosphatase during the sexual cycle in apparently normal sows.
