The anatomic segments of the epididymis include the initial segment, the caput, the corpus and the cauda. Each region consists of a lumen and a polarized epithelium composed mostly of principal and basal cells (Lasserre et al., 2001; Dacheux et al., 2005). Although these four anatomical regions of the epididymis are easily identified in most adult male(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate morphometric-stereological changes in the epididymal caput, sperm quality, and fertility parameters in rats treated with finasteride and after a 30-day post-treatment recovery period. DESIGN Experimental study in a research laboratory. SETTING Reproductive biology research laboratory. ANIMAL(S) Male and female Sprague Dawley(More)
Based on the limited number of studies that have investigated the adverse effects of maternal treatment with antidepressants on the development of male descendents, this study was carried out in rat in order to evaluate if maternal exposure to fluoxetine (FLX) or St. John's Wort (SJW) could disrupt the development of male offspring. The dams were treated(More)
The epididymis has an important role in the maturation of sperm for fertilization, but little is known about the epididymal molecules involved in sperm modifications during this process. We have previously described the expression pattern for an antigen in epididymal epithelial cells that reacts with the monoclonal antibody (mAb) TRA 54. Immunohistochemical(More)
