Two variants of a method for determining the quantitative structure of the human seminiferous epithelium are described. Both versions (counting cells in whole tubules and in CA's) utilize specific criteria for the identification of cells, tubules and /or CA's. Both methods utilize the Sertoli cell as a constant with the cell types expressed as numbers of cells per Sertoli cell. One hundred biopsies were quantitated by the tubular method and 100 by the CA method. Counts were found to be… CONTINUE READING
