Photomicrograph of the lateral surface of a vallate papilla (V). A: gustatory sulcus (star), taste pore (arrowhead), nonmyelinated nerve (arrow) arising from the base of the taste bud. B: spindle-shaped neuroepithelial cells with prominent nuclei (arrowheads), sustentacular cells (arrows). C: sustentacular cell showing mitotic activity (arrow). A, H&E stain. B & C, Masson's trichrome stain DISCUSSION

The present study aimed at investigating the histological structures of the vallate papillae of the tongue of the dromedary camel. Samples were taken from the tongues of 5 healthy adult dromedary camels, then processed by standard routine histological technique. The vallate papillae were broad, encircled by a distinctive sulcus, and exhibited conca...

... were spherical in shape and connected to the groove by taste pores (Fig. 4A). The taste buds presented two types of cells, large spindle-shaped neuroepithelial cells with prominent nuclei, and small sustentacular cells, some of which showed mitotic activity (Fig. 4B, C). Nonmyelinated nerve was observed emerging from the basal area of the taste buds (Fig. ...
