Abstract

Secretory cell glycoconjugates of the external nasal glands of ruin lizard and seps were investigated by prelectin staining methods (periodic acid-Schiff, alcian blue, high iron diamine) and lectin histochemistry in combination with neuraminidase digestion. Five plant lectins (<I>Canavalia ensiformis, Triticum vulgare, Glycine max, Lotus tetragonolobus and Arachys hypogaea</I>) conjugated with horseradish peroxidase were tested. Two different secretory cell types could be distinguished in the glandular tubules in both species examined. Lectin histochemistry revealed a microheterogeneity of mucins produced by the different secretory cell types of the two lizards regarding to the distribution pattern of glycosidic residues in glycoproteins.
