..The entire sensory epithelium of the pig was labelled by Ulex europeus and Lycopersicum esculentum lectins, and all 4 lectins used labelled the mucomicrovillar surface of the sensory epithelium in sheep. ..

..3) the zone to zone projection from the apical and basal sensory epithelium of the VNO to the anterior and posterior part of the AOB, respectively, typical in rodents, lagomorphs and marsupials, is not present in adult sheep. ..

..This latter result probably reflects binding of lectins to sugar residues contained in secreted mucus rather than those in epithelial nerve endings. ..

..There was no evidence for differential projections from the anterior and posterior sub-regions accessory olfactory bulb in mice, as has been reported to occur in other species. ..

..By age 25 days, the staining patterns were essentially those of the adult mouse. BSI-B(4) appears to be specific for the accessory vs. the main olfactory bulb throughout life. ..

..These results suggest that the vomeronasal system of the pig may, like that of vertebrates such as snakes, be functional at birth. ..

..In addition, our data suggest that the conventional plexiform layers of the main olfactory bulb are not present in the accessory bulb. ..
