Morphological characteristics of nonpregnant mice thymus at chorionic gonadotropin injection

Keywords: thymus, chorionic gonadotropin, lymphocytes

The given work is dedicated to morphological and immunohistochemical characteristics of the thymus of mice (n = 100) at chorionic gonadotropin injection during 1, 2, 3, 4 weeks in the dose of 2 IU/mouse twice a week. Monoclonal antibodies to receptors CD4, CD8, protein Ki-67 to evaluate the proliferative pool of lymphocytes were used. Hormone injection leads to changing the form and to an increase in medulla’s area in thymic lobules, to an increase of the amount of CD4+ and CD8+ cells in lobules of thymus. Along with this a reduction in the number of cells expressing the protein of proliferation Ki-67 takes place.
