This study aimed to investigate the effects of di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP) on Sertoli-cell vimentin filaments and germ-cell apoptosis in testes of pubertal rats at different selenium (Se) status. Se deficiency was produced in 3-weeks old Sprague-Dawley rats by feeding them ≤ 0.05 Se mg/kg diet for 5 weeks, Se supplementation group was on 1 mg Se/kg… CONTINUE READING
