The characteristics of glycoconjugates in the mucous cells of the sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax L. 1758) gill were investigated by histochemical staining procedures. Histochemical results showed that mucous cells in the primary filament (primary lamellae) epithelium contain acidic, neutral and sulphated glycoconjugates and also mucous cells were stained weakly with AB pH 0.5 were detected in the primary filament epithelium.


Key Words: Dicentrarchus labrax, Gill, Glycoconjugates, Histochemistry, Mucous cells.
