Fig. 27. Sagittal sections of leptocephali of Japanese eel at 17.0 (A, B), 22.0 (C, D), 32.2 (E, F) and 54.8 (G, H) μm, and glass eel just after metamorphosis (I, J), showing the development of the gills. Panels A, C, E, G, and I show tissues stained with hematoxylin and eosin. Panels B, D, F, H, and J show tissues immunocytochemically stained with anti-Na+/K+-ATPase for detection of MR cells. Arrows and asterisks indicate the location of MR cells and gill arches, respectively. Bar: 50 μm. Reprinted from Mar.
