The pancreas is a unique and composite digestive gland consisting of exocrine part of acini and endocrine part of islets of Langerhans. The pancreas were collected from five age groups viz., four, six, eight, ten months and adult in large white Yorkshire and also from adult desi pigs. Histochemical study revealed that the duct epithelium showed strong PAS reaction and weak reaction to acid mucopolysaccharides. Numerous tyrosine and lysine containing proteins were observed in the pancreatic parenchyma. Positive reaction for lipid was noticed in the sub capsular and interlobular connective tissue of pancreas in both large white Yorkshire and desi pigs. Likewise, all the acinar, ductal epithelium and cells of islets of Langerhans showed positive ribonucleic acid reaction. Acid phosphatase, alkaline phosphatase and non-specific esterase activities were observed in acinar cells and epithelial cells of pancreatic ducts.

Keywords: Pancreas, histochemistry, Islets of Langerhans
