The ovarian histology of Parascaptor leucurus, the white‐tailed mole, is very similar to that of Talpa europeaa, especially with reference to the presence of two zones: (1) an ovigerous, or female, zone, and (2) an interstitial‐cell, or male‐like, zone. The ovigerous zone contains the follicles and corpora lutea. This pole of the ovary only is covered with a germinal epithelium. The interstitial‐cell zone is made up entirely of islands of interstitial cells and of very short testis‐like tubules… Expand

ENZYMIC ACTIVITY OF THE GONADS
This chapter illustrates the germination cells of the male and female gonads, and their enzymic activity in mammalian gonads. The female gonads in the mammal represent a very complex system becauseExpand
The Ovarian Cycle in Vertebrates
TLDR
The reproductive processes of fishes are extremely diverse, partly on account of their great phylogenetic age and partly because of the freedom of the reproductive structures and processes from the demands of other organs and systems. Expand

TLDR
The significance of the so-called interstitial cells found in the ovary and testis of many mammals and of some lower orders is still a much-debated subject and the number of reports in current clinical literature on the more or less successful use of ovarian extracts and transplants in female disorders is particularly struck.
