The present study describes the morphological features of the eight stages of the seminiferous epithelium in Landrace boars according to the tubular morphology method, as well as their relative frequency, length, and duration. In Landrace boars the pre-meiotic stages occupied the 31.9 +/- 19.9% of the spermatogenic cycle and had a total length of 1788.8 +/- 1153.0 microm and a duration of 2.78 days; they were mainly characterised by the presence of leptotene and pachytene spermatocytes and… CONTINUE READING
