Cadmium at a non-toxic dose alters gene expression in mouse testes
Short-term effects of carbendazim on the gross and microscopic features of the testes
of Japanese quails (Coturnix coturnix japonica).
Investigators performing autopsies on birds should look for and report supernumerary testes
to help elucidate the phylogenetic distribution and evolutionary implications of this interesting phenomenon.
PCR reactions were performed in a thermalcycler (iCycler Bio-Rad, Hercules, CA, USA) with equal amount of cDNA samples from testes
in separate tubes in duplicate.
For males, 15 had scrotal testes
(5, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7 by 5, 7 by 5, 8, 8,8 by 6,8 by 6, 9, 9, and 9 mm).
Although admitting the leap to humans is considerable, the colonised mouse testes
are already providing useful insights.
In the laboratory, the testes
were separated from the epididymis, weighed to the nearest 0.
12) In transverse testicular ectopia, the two testes
have two different sets of blood vessels and vasa deferens.
The small size reflects the finding that Meishan boars have fewer Sertoli cells--the cells that develop sperm--in their testes
The present study quantifies the observation of distinctly non-lobate testes
that could be categorized as round or asymmetrical in addition to the previously described lobate testes
2) It can also be seen in the following settings: cryptorchid testes
(2%-4%), dysgenetic testes
(up to 25%), testes
of infertile males (0%-1%), and testes
of healthy males (0.
Defined by having testes
and a clitoris or a similar manifestation of external female genitalia
