Results
Specimen 3A: postnatal adult (more )
Structure Level Pattern Image Note
TS28: seminiferous tubule Strong Regionally restricted 3A Expression was present in the outer layers, where spermatogonia and early spermatocytes are found; it was not found in the inner cell layers where spermatids and sperm are located, nor in the Sertoli cells.
TS28: spermatocyte Strong 3A
TS28: spermatogonium Strong 3A
TS28: Sertoli cell Absent 3A
TS28: spermatid Absent 3A
TS28: spermatozoon Absent 3A
TS28: Leydig cell Absent 3A There was no expression in Leydig cells and other interstitial cells.
TS28: interstitium of the testis Absent 3A There was no expression in Leydig cells and other interstitial cells.

Specimen 3C: postnatal adult (more )
Structure Level Pattern Image Note
TS28: oocyte Present 3C
TS28: ovary follicle Present Regionally restricted 3C Expression is present in granulosa cells in growing follicles but is hardly detectable over the interstitial cells.
TS28: corpus luteum Absent 3C

Specimen 3E: embryonic day 12.5 (more )
Structure Level Pattern Image Note
TS20: primary sex cord Present 3E
TS20: interstitium of the testis Absent 3E There is no expression on insterstitial cells and the germinal epithelium.

Specimen not shown: embryonic day 12.5 (more )
Structure Level Pattern Image Note
TS20: ovary Present
