This paper is a part of our study on the male reproductive system of bonnet monkey. The developmental changes in testis of bonnet monkey were studied qualitatively and quantitatively, at the light microscopy level. Testicular development appears to primarily involve tubular growth that starts immediately after birth. There is a gradual increase in the number of tubules in the prenatal to neonatal stage in testis, without an increase in the volume. Increase in the number of tubules in the… Expand
Morphometrical changes of the seminiferous tubules and Leydig cells in Assam goats (Capra hircus) from birth to 10 months
TLDR
Different micrometrical parameters of the seminiferous tubules were found to increase with the increase in age of the male goats and they showed a significant increase between the age of 6 and 8 months. Expand
Morphological development of testes in ostrich (Struthio camelus) embryo
TLDR
Stereological estimations in the ostrich embryos testis showed the major proportion of testis is occupied by the seminiferous tubules, which is unlike the fowl embryo testis. Expand
Effect of Ethinylestradiol on the Staging of Spermatogenesis in Testis of Albino Rats
Background: This study was conducted to see the effect of estrogen on the morphology of rat’s testis to evaluate the stages of spermatogenesis. Material and Methods: 63 male neonatal rats wereExpand
Anatomical aspects of the male reproductive system in the bonnet monkey (Macaca radiata)
TLDR
Excellent adaptability and spermatogenic efficiency in the laboratory environment makes this animal a good primate model for andrological research. Expand
Light and Electron Microscopic Investigations on The Adult Badger ’ s ( Meles meles ) Testis
It was seen that testicular parenchyma consisted of lining cells of the seminiferous tubules and their ducts as well as interstitial cells. It was determined that the sertoli cells rest on the basalExpand
Morphological development of ovaries in ostrich (Struthio camelus) embryo
TLDR
This work is the first study that provides histological evidence for the normal structure of ovaries and suggests the time of onset of meiosis in the ostrich embryo. Expand
Impact of sperm retrieival on testis and epididymis: an experimental study using Wistar albino rats
TLDR
Analysis of pathophysiological changes after testicular sperm aspiration and microsurgical epididymal sperm aspiration procedures in Wistar albino rats revealed an up-regulation of apoptosis in both contra- and ipsilateral testes of TESA, and extrapolating conclusions from the experimental model to the clinic needs to be done cautiously. Expand
Long-Term Hyperglycemic effect on rat Epididymis and Sperm
The epididymis, an important organ of male reproduction, imparts sperm maturation acquiring motility and fertilizing potential and removal of defective sperm and providing good microenvironment. InExpand
Therapeutic potential of Mucuna pruriens (Linn.) on ageing induced damage in dorsal nerve of the penis and its implication on erectile function: an experimental study using albino rats
TLDR
The results indicate a multi-factorial therapeutic activity in penile innervations towards sustaining the penile erection in the presence of the extract in aged rats and justifying the claim of traditional usage. Expand
Cellular alterations and damage to the renal tissue of marine catfish Arius arius following Cd exposure and the possible sequestrant role of Metallothionein.
TLDR
The notion that exposure to sublethal Cd levels induces oxidative stress, leading to structural and functional impairment of the kidneys, supports the notion that Cd uptake and MT induction can serve as useful environmental biomarkers. Expand

Is infancy a quiescent period of testicular development? Histological, morphometric, and functional study of the seminiferous tubules of the cebus monkey from birth to the end of puberty.
TLDR
The objective of this study was to describe the maturational changes observed in the seminiferous tubules of the monkey Cebus apella from birth to the end of puberty, suggesting that the Cebus is a useful model for studies of human male puberty. Expand
Ultrastructure of testes and excurrent ducts in the bonnet monkey (Macaca radiata).
TLDR
The testes and excurrent ducts of four bonnet macaques were examined using scanning and transmission electron microscopy and the epithelium of the vas deferens showed gradual transition from the stereocilia covering typical of the epididymis to that of a shorter, apical microvilli covering. Expand
Morphological and histometric study of human spermatogonia from birth to the onset of puberty.
TLDR
Normal human testes obtained at autopsy from 99 male subjects whose ages ranged from a few days after birth to 13 years of age were studied by light and electron microscopy, finding some of the basal spermatogonia appear hypertrophic, bi- or trinucleated, or degenerated. Expand
Electron Microscopy of the Human Seminiferous Tubules
The germinal epithelium of the testis is composed of different cell types which constantly undergo changes through a complicated combination of proliferation, differentiation and renewal. ClermontExpand
Morphometric analysis of Leydig cells in the normal rat testis
TLDR
Morphometric analysis of Leydig cells in mature normal rats was carried out on tissue fixed by perfusion with buffered glutaraldehyde, and embedded in glycol methacrylate for light microscopy and in Epon for electron microscopy to obtain quantitative information about rat LeydIG cells and their organelles that might be correlated with pertinent physiological and biochemical data available either now or in the future.

Morphometric aspects of rat testis development.
TLDR
A morphometric study of rat testis development and ageing (from 5 to 360 days of age) has been carried out, finding that from this age onwards the tubular growth was similar in both length and diameter. Expand
Organization of Seminiferous Epithelium in Primates: Relationship to Spermatogenic Efficiency, Phylogeny, and Mating System1
TLDR
No direct relationship between single-stage/multistage tubular topography and phylogeny could be established across primates, and the tubule arrangement seen in Platyrrhini and Catarrhini primates is the reverse of what might be expected from phylogeny. Expand
Histopathology of undescended testes
TLDR
A survey of the morphological findings in cryptorchid testes, especially of children, is presented and so-called atypical germ cells can be demonstrated even if there are no clinical signs of a malignant testicular tumor. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that by using antisera raised in humans to ovine LH, this method may be developed as a fertility control measure in humans. Expand

TLDR
A critical need for estrogen during the peri-implantation period for a successful pregnancy establishment in primates is demonstrated. Expand
