Caption Morphological and histological comparison of tissues and organs from age-matched Fkbp4tm1Shou/Fkbp4tm1Shou and wild-type male mice. A: Morphological comparison of male internal reproductive organs in wild-type (WT, a) and Fkbp4tm1Shou/Fkbp4tm1Shou (FKBP52-/-, b) adult mice. Mutant males have overall normal testis (Tes) formation and normal epididymis (Epi) but significantly smaller seminal vesicles (SV). Kid, kidney; Bl, bladder; Pe, penis. The black arrow indicates the urethral opening. B: Histological analysis of prostate gland development in mutant and age-matched wild-type mice at birth (P0) to 3 months old. Prostate glands are initially formed during embryonic development in both wild-type (a) and mutant (b) mice but lack further growth after birth (d) and eventually become dysgenic in mutant adult males (f) when compared with littermate wild-type mice (c and e). Prostate glands are indicated by black arrows.
