Abstract: The ultrastructure of the parathyroid glands of calcium-treated golden hamsters subjected to 5 gravity environment was studied. In the calcium-treated animals exposed to hypergravity environment, the Golgi complexes and cisternae of the granular endoplasmic reticulum were significantly decreased compared with those of the animals exposed to hypergravity environment only and appeared to increase compared with those of the calcium-treated animals, but were almost similar to those of the control animals. In addition, many chief cells contained some prosecretory granules in the Golgi areas, some secretory granules situated close to the plasma membrane and many lysosomes. The morphology of the parathyroid glands in the calcium-treated animals exposed to hypergravity environment resembled that of the control animals. These results suggest that the parathyroid glands suppressed by treatment of calcium and stimulated in response to hypergravity environment may indicate the secretory activity of the parathyroid glands of the control animals.
