Histochemical localization and quantification of alpha-glucosidase in the epididymis of men and laboratory animals.
The seminal marker of epididymal function alpha-1, 4-glucosidase was localized histochemically in the cytoplasm of the efferent duct epithelium and the brush border of the entire length of the humanExpand

The visual cells of the chicken as revealed by phase contrast microscopy.
Phase microscopic investigations of Kolmer-fixed, depigmented sections of the adult chicken retina have provided photomicrographic evidence of the existence of three different photoreceptors: singleExpand

Sperm number and condition affect the number of basal cells and their expression of macrophage antigen in the murine epididymis.
Unilateral ligation of the mid-corpus epididymis, the proximal vas deferens and imposition of an abdominal temperature for 6 days as well as bilateral castration for 3, 6 or 14 days, resulted in aExpand

Development of sperm motility patterns in the murine epididymis.
The maturation of sperm motility in the epididymis of the mouse was assessed using a computer-assisted sperm analysis system. Spermatozoa were immotile in the most proximal regions of the epididymisExpand

Presence and distribution of leucocyte subsets in the murine epididymis after vasectomy.
Male mice were vasectomized by 'open-ended' or 'closed' techniques. After 4 weeks the cell-mediated immune reactions were compared with those of sham-operated animals by immunohistochemicalExpand

Standardization of sampling and staining methods for the morphometric evaluation of sperm heads in the Cynomolgus monkey (Macaca fascicularis) using computer-assisted image analysis
Automated sperm morphology analysis (ASMA) technology has improved the assessment of sperm morphology, but the results depend on the use of adequate and standardized procedures. In this study theExpand

Changes in the motility patterns of spermatozoa from the rabbit epididymis as assessed by computer‐aided sperm motion analysis
Sperm maturation in the epididymis includes changes in their potential for motility that enables spermatozoa to reach the egg and penetrate its investments. The motility characteristics ofExpand

Concentrations of carnitine, glutamate and myo-inositol in epididymal fluid and spermatozoa from boars.
This study examines the concentrations of carnitine, glutamate and myo-inositol in fluid and spermatozoa from six epididymal regions. Samples were taken from six post-pubertal boars, and the spermExpand

Factors affecting the entry of testosterone into the lumen of the cauda epididymidis of the anaesthetized rat.
When [3H]testosterone was infused into the general circulation of the rat, perfusion of a length of the cauda epididymidis (17 +/- 1.0 (s.e.m.) cm, n = 36) with perfusates of varied compositionExpand

Epididymal Proteins and Sperm Maturation
It is appropriate that a Testis Workshop should have as an accessory appendage a session on the epididymis, for the mere production of sperm cells is insufficient for fertility and a period ofExpand
