Spermiogenesis begins with the formation of the differentiation zone delimited at the base by the ring of the arched membranes and bordered by cortical microtubules. This area contains two centrioles associated with striated rootlets and with an intercentriolar body. It also contains the nucleus and numerous… CONTINUE READING
