The pathologic phenotype of the testis in both prepuberal and postpuberal male weaver mutant mice was studied by light microscopy. Morphometric analysis of seminiferous tubules was carried out. Epididymal fluid was examined for the presence of spermatozoa. The seminiferous tubules of 21-day-old prepuberal weaver mutant mice lacked patent lumina and had more degenerated cells than control mice. Fifty-six day-old weaver mutants had many germinal epithelial cells located within the adluminal… CONTINUE READING
