  • The testis of the donkey was completely descended into the scrotum around birth. It was covered by a thick tunica albuginea consisting of outer and inner fibrous layers in addition to middle vascular one. Discrete bundles of smooth muscle cells were demonstrated in the outer fibrous layer of the tunica albuginea. These cells give the tunica albuginea a contractile function, which may aid in sperm transport. The present study emphasized an irregular arrangement of the testicular lobules of the… CONTINUE READING
