Abstract

Adult female armadillos were injected with tritiated estradiol. The Harderian gland was removed and processed for autoradiography. Nuclear uptake and retention of the steroid were observed in the duct of the gland, the periductal mucous cells of the mucus‐secreting lobules, and the fibroblasts in the interstitial connective tissue.
