This study shows that the nucleus of the secondary spermatocyte can participate in syngamy and normal embryonic development. Spermatogenic cells were released from the seminiferous tubules of adult mice, and the secondary spermatocytes were selected according to the size of the whole cell and nucleus. The accuracy of this selection, evaluated by chromosome analysis, was 86%. Nuclei of presumptive secondary spermatocytes were freed from the cytoplasm and then injected individually into mature… CONTINUE READING
