ABSTRACT wrote:
In this study the maxillary barbels were investigated in Silurus
triostegus (Heckel, 1843) and Heteropneustes fossilis (Bloch, 1794)
which collected from Basra (Shatt Al Arab) waters. After histological
preparations, the histological results revealed that in the two species,
the barbels showed epithelium, dermis, muscle layers, tastes buds, blood
vessels, nerve fibers and cartilage. The thickness of epithelium differs
between the two species also the shape of taste buds. The cartilage
occupies the core of the barbel and consider to be primitive cartilage
with chondrocytes and matrix. Two types of muscles were distinguished
in the studied species smooth and skeletal muscles..
