Abstract
The skin structure of Misgurnus mizolepis was studied based on the microanatomical investigation of skin fragments taken from four regions . The epidermis was distinguished by two types of skin glands , a small mucous cell and a large club cell. The mucous cell was acid sulfomucins (some s ialomucins), but the club cell did not give any histochemical tests for mucosubstances. The presence of a well defined lymphatic system with small lympho cytes was established in the stratum germinativum layer of the epidermis. A large number of blood capillaries run very close to each other just below the basement membrane , and a definite are a giving AB and PAS positive was present between the basement membrane and scale. These structural features of skin in M. mizolep is seem to be closely related with cutaneous respiration.
