    • Abstract


      The histochemistry of secretory material in neurosecretory cells (NSC) ofSquilla holosckista has been investigated. The cells of eyestalk, thoracic ganglia and brain contain different substances with regard to reproductively active and quiescent phases. The NSC of eyestalkC andD are rich in protein, associated with sulphur containing aminoacids. TheB type of NSC of thoracic ganglia is rich in lipoprotein, whereas theC type of the brain is glycolipoprotein.
