Harderian glands, first described by Jacob Harder in two species of deer in , are large, intraorbital glands which, with but few exceptions, are found in all land vertebrates. Certainly, their relatively large size, their phylogenetic age, and persistent conservation in all groups as  › Biomedical Sciences › Human Physiology. Harderian glands are pigmented lacrimal glands located posterior to the ocular globes. These secretory glands release a lipid- and porphyrin-rich material that lubricates the eyes and eyelids. Additionally, the harderian gland is a site of immune response, a source of thermoregulatory lipids and pheromones, a photoprotective organ and part of a /harderian-gland. Get this from a library! Harderian Glands: Porphyrin Metabolism, Behavioral and Endocrine Effects. [Susan M Webb; Roger A Hoffman; Manuel L Puig-Domingo; Russel J Reiter] -- The Harderian glands, located within the orbital cavities of amphibia, reptiles, birds and most mammals, are perhaps one of the last discrete tissues for which we connot yet define a normal Abstract. This chapter summarizes 15 years of research on the Harderian gland of the Mongolian gerbil, Meriones l reviews and discussions of research methodology are found in Thiessen (, a, b, ) and Thiessen and Harriman ().

The mouse has three lacrimal glands. The largest is the Harderian gland which lies behind the eye in the orbit and partially encircles the optic nerve. A small intraorbital lacrimal gland is associated with the eyelid, and a large extraorbital lacrimal gland lies subcutaneously at the base of the
