Developing omasum of prenatal goat between 32 to 150 days of foetal life was taken for this study. The foeti were divided into three groups viz. Group I (age >50 days), Group II (age 51>100 days) and Group III (age 101>150 days). Staining was performed for PAS, AMPS, Bound lipid, Alkaline phosphatase, Acid phosphatase and DNA. Cells of basal zone exhibited intense reaction for PAS and lipid, followed by smooth muscle cells, blood vessels, nerve elements and connective tissue cells. AMPS reaction was most pronounced in epithelial cells of the superficial zone. Strong activity was shown in the basement membrane for PAS and lipid. Smooth muscle cells and blood vessels showed a weak reaction to AKPS. Nuclei of the cells of basal zone revealed intense Feulgen reaction for DNA followed by smooth muscle cells, blood vessels, nerve elements and connective tissue cells.
