The embryonic gills were observed and photographed; afterward, the embryos were placed in a paraformaldehyde-pentanedial fixative solution containing 4 % formaldehyde and 2.5 % pentanedial to fix the tissues for 24 h at 4 [degrees]C; the gills were observed and photographed under a stereoscopic microscope (Nikon-SMZ800).
In the present case, the insoluble fraction appears more dependent on the dispersion of pentanedial than on the residence time in the extruder.
