Leydig cell development was investigated in the marmoset (Callithrix jacchus) testis from 24 h post partum (pp) up to sexual maturity, using ultrastructural and histochemical methods. Electron microscopically three different Leydig cell (LC) types could be distinguished: neonatal, immature and adult LCs. Neonatal LCs exhibited a round nucleus, large tubular… CONTINUE READING
