Since then, Leydig cell lipids have been reported in every group from the Agnatha to the Mammalia2. Although an enormous amount of work has been carried out on the seminiferous tubules, the majority of workers have used traditional wax-embedding techniques which result in the dissolution of lipids. Thus many… CONTINUE READING
