Our investigations oriented towards the urinary tracts, particulary the bladder and ureter, were carried out by histochemical and ultrastructural studies by SEM and TEM observation. In this segment of urinary tract, by structural, ultrastructural and chemical analysis, have evinced variations related to different animal species (guinea pig, rabbit and rat). The bladder wall was considered from us for histochemical aspects related to hydrolytic lysosomial enzymes (Ac-Phase; Na-beta-Gase) and oxidative enzymes (SDH; Iso-DH; MADH) and ultrastructural aspect with TEM. The SEM observations showed the connection between morphovolumetric variations of uroepithelial cells and respiratory enzymatic activity.
