Immunoelectron microscopy was used to locate the proteins BASP1 and MARCKS in the post-meiotic spermatids of male rat testis. It was shown that in early spermatids, BASP1 and MARCKS accumulate in chromatoid bodies, which are characteristic organelles for these cells. During spermatogenesis, while the spermatid nucleus is still active, the chromatoid body periodically moves to the cell nucleus and absorbs the precursors of definite mRNAs and small RNAs. mRNAs are preserved in the chromatoid body… CONTINUE READING
