Additional data

Additional Notes
I am not familiar with the distribution pattern of this protein.
Results on mouse and rat testis appear very similar.
Positive components in the submitted image are indicated by coloured arrowheads:
red for densely positive nuclei that appear to be confined to the stem cell layer ( immediately above, some spermatogonia exhibit a nuclear speckling)
Yellow indicates a moderate cytoplasmic positivity, more evident in some seminiferous tubules (ST).
Green for a strong apparently cytoplasmic positivity at the lumenal surface of a proportion of ST. To me, this does not appear to be spermatozoa positivity spermatids?Sertoli cells?
