Abstract

To investigate morphological changes in the endocrine pancreas of chicken after pancreatic duct ligation, experimental animals were subdivided to control, 12 hours, 1 day, 2 days, 4 days, 7 days and 10 days groupes and all of three pancreatic ducts of chicken were ligated by surgical procedure and then the morphological changes were observed. In pancreatic islets, the vacuolation and invasion of connective tissue were occurred in all experimental groups and dissociation of pancreatic islets was detected in 4 days after pancreatic duct ligation and hold out to 10 days. The peak of the morphological changes in pancreatic islets was detected in 4 days after pancreatic duct ligation. In the results of immunohistochemical methods against glucagon, insulin, somatostatin and bovine pancreatic polypeptide(BPP), the number of immunoreactive pancreatic islets were decreased but the size increased with time, so the number of immunoreactive cells in each pancreatic islets were increased. Glucagon-immunoreactive cells were not changed but insulin-immunoreactive cells were decreased with time(p<0.05). BPP-immunoreactive cells were increased in 2 days after pancreatic duct ligation and then decreased with time(p<0.05). Somatostatin-immunoreactive cells were increased with time(p<0.05) in dark islets.
