The Anatomical Record (Anat Rec)
The Anatomical Record is an official publication of the American Association of Anatomists whose purpose is to rapidly publish new discoveries in the morphological aspects of molecular cellular systems and evolutionary biology. Emphasis will focus upon major new findings in the anatomical consequences of gene disruption activation or over expression upon cell tissue or organ architecture. The journal recognizes the importance of descriptive studies in contemporary research particularly when framed in the context of experimental models or questions. An important priority will be those discoveries and new advances made through the use of imaging modalities that range from those that image real-time signalling processes to ones that image protein or gene expression in individual cells tissues or whole organisms. Papers will be accepted dealing with functional morphology of any vertebrate organ system including those with a developmental comparative or evolutionary theme. With respect to developmental biology our sister journal-- Developmental Dynamics --focuses on biochemical and molecular mechanisms of vertebrate and invertebrate development. Our area of coverage will be directed primarily to the organ or system level where descriptive studies of normal and abnormal development may become an important consideration in characterizing phenotypes. In addition timely reviews of important topics related to Anatomy and its subdisciplines will be regularly included. Discontinued - now The Anatomical Record Part A and B.

ABSTRACT: Sturgeons constitute a family of living "fossil" fish whose heart is related to that of other ancient fish and the elasmobranches. We have undertaken a systematic study of the structure of the sturgeon heart aimed at unraveling the relationship between the heart structure and the adaptive evolutionary changes. In a related paper, data were presented on the conus valves and the subendocardium. Here, the structure of the conus myocardium, the subepicardial tissue, and the conus-aorta transition were studied by conventional light, transmission, and scanning electron microscopy. In addition, actin localization by fluorescent phalloidin was used. The conus myocardium is organized into bundles whose spatial organization changes along the conus length. The variable orientation of the myocardial cell bundles may be effective in emptying the conus lumen during contraction and in preventing reflux of blood. Myocardial cell bundles are separated by loose connective tissue that contains collagen and elastin fibers, vessels, and extremely flat cells separating the cell bundles and enclosing blood vessels and collagen fibers. The ultrastructure of the myocardial cells was found to be very similar to that of other fish groups, suggesting that it is largely conservative. The subepicardium is characterized by the presence of nodular structures that contain lympho-hemopoietic (thymus-like) tissue in the young sturgeons and a large number of lymphocytes after the sturgeons reach sexual maturity. This tissue is likely implicated in the establishment and maintenance of the immune responses. The intrapericardial ventral aorta shows a middle layer of circumferentially oriented cells and internal and external layers with cells oriented longitudinally. Elastin fibers completely surround each smooth muscle cell, and the spaces between the different layers are occupied by randomly arranged collagen bundles. The intrapericardial segment of the ventral aorta is a true transitional segment whose structural characteristics are different from those of both the conus subendocardium and the rest of the ventral aorta.The Anatomical Record 01/2003; 268(4):388-98.
