Structural changes of the head components of the rat spermatid during late spermiogenesis.

Abstract

The transformation of the nucleus, acrosomic system, and peri-nuclear theca (perforatorium and post-acrosomal dense lamina) was analyzed during the maturation phase, i.e., steps 14 to 19 of spermiogenesis. Following partial condensation of chromatin from steps 11-14, the nucleus continues to condense during the following steps until the end of… (More)
