Luminal fluids were collected in vivo by micropuncture and cannulation from the rete testis, efferent ducts and ductus epididymidis of the rat to determine the composition of efferent duct fluids and the rates of reabsorption of water and solutes by the efferent ducts. The concentration of spermatozoa increased by a factor of about 25 from 2.42 x 10(4) microliters-1 in the fluid from the rete testis to 6.00 x 10(5) microliters-1 in fluid at the end of the efferent ducts, indicating that 96.2… CONTINUE READING
