Abstract
The complex carbohydrates in the camel duodenal glands were examined histoc hemically at light and electron microscopic levels. The duodenal glands of the camel were distributed in the submucosa 2 m caudal from the pylorus. Th ese were branched tubuloalveolar glands. The terminal portion of each lobul e was formed by only one type of mucous cell. The duodenal gland cells cont ained acidic and neutral carbohydrates. The mucous cells mainly contained s ulfate and carboxyl carbohydrate with sialic acid, and they also contained a few neutral carbohydrates with different saccharide residues such as mann ose, glucose, galactose, N-acetyl glucosamine and N-acetyl galactosamine. T he results showed that the secretary granules of the duodenal glands in the camel contain mainly acidic carbohydrates. These findings seem to be the m orphological characteristics of the duodenal glands in the camel.
