DIFFERENTIAL STAINING OF "EXCRETORY" SYSTEM MUCINS OF HETERODERA SCHACHTII J 2-JUVENILES

J. Aumann

Abstract


"Excretory" system mucins of Heterodera schachtii-juveniles were induced to leave the secretory vesicles and gland cells. Mucin components were then differentially stained with aniline blue. The mucins were composed of a darker staining central care and a lighter peripheral region. The peripheral region decomposed during the experiments whereas the care appeared intact. It is hypothesized that the care has a higher protein content than the peripheral region.
