A procedure for isolating the chromatoid body from the testis of 40-day-old rats was developed. Electron-microscopical analysis indicated that about 70% of the isolated organelles were chromatoid bodies, while the remaining structures corresponded to dense bodies and probably to satellites. Negative staining of the isolated organelles revealed the presence of polysome-like structures in about 20% of the chromatoid bodies suggesting that the polysomes were not due to contamination with… CONTINUE READING
