The efficiency of spermatogenesis and the support capacity of Sertoli cells in Characiformes.

Abstract

This stereological analysis of the types of germ cells and the number of Sertoli cells per cyst in Astyanax altiparanae testes during spermatogenesis is the first such report in Characiformes. Testes of 25 male A. altiparanae were examined. Based on the number of spermatogonia B per cyst (469.2 ± 9.92), we estimated that spermatogonia undergo at least nine… (More)
