Although it has been suggested that epithelial cells of the male reproductive system are involved in apocrine secretion, this method of secretion is not fully understood. In the present study, apocrine secretion was investigated in epithelial principal cells lining the epididymis and vas deferens (VD) of adult mice. The tissues were fixed by cardiac vascular perfusion with glutaraldehyde for routine electron microscope (EM) analysis and Bouin's fixative for light microscope (LM… Expand
