|Abstract:||Lagomorpha are often used as animal models in reproductive experiments. The aim of the present study was to examine the glycoconjugate modifications occurring mainly in the zona pellucida during oocyte growth in the rabbit and hare, using a battery of lectins combined with sialidase digestion and chemical treatments. This histochemical approach made it possible to identify sulpho- and asulpho-carbohydrates in the terminal and/or subterminal position linked to sialic acid residues. The lectins that stained the zona pellucida of both species most effectively were SBA, PNA and WGA, indicating the presence of beta-D-N-acetylgalactosamine, beta-D-galactosamine and N-acetylglucosamine residues. The differences in the glucidic residue content and in their spatial distribution that depended on the species and stage of follicle development were also detected.|
