Abstract: The aim of this study was to examine morphological changes of myenteric plexus in abomasum of one-humped camel (Camelus dromedarius) during pre and postnatal development. Researchers studied preparation of myenteric plexus in one-humped camel from 190 days of gestation to adulthood. Three regions of abomasum preparations of the myenteric plexus were stained AChE histochemistry in six camels from six different age groups. The axonal diameter, distance between ganglia, neuronal cell size and neuronal nucleus size were measured with the aid of Light Micrograph and Image J Program. The meshwork expands with increasing age that the axonal diameter and inter ganglionic distance increasing with age in myenteric plexus of abomasums in camels, significantly (p<0.05) and neuronal cell size and neuronal nucleus size of enteric neurons also increased with age but was not statistically significant. The researchers found for the first time that the axonal thickness in myenteric plexus striking changes during the 1st 12 weeks of life in camels.
