Phagocytic cells disposing of dying granulosa cells in the atretic ovarian follicles were morphologically studied in guinea pig ovaries at various stages of estrous cycle. Epon embedded semithin sections stained with toluidine blue were observed with a light microscope, and ultrathin sections were examined under a transmission electron microscope. Frozen sections were processed for acid phosphatase histochemistry and MR-1 (a monoclonal antibody against guinea pig macrophages… CONTINUE READING
