Abstract:
The present investigation was carried out on the testes 12 large white Yorkshire pig between the age of seven months to around one and half year for histological study. The testes were procured from the apparantly healthy animals. The seminiferous tubules formed the major portion of testicular parenchyma in each lobule of testis and were lined with the stratified Epithelium of spermatogenic cells and Sertoli cells. The basement membrane of each tubule along with framework of collagen, reticular and elastic fibres, which supported the germinal epithelium.
The average thickness of seminiferous tubules were 253.70±14.29 µm. The peri-tubular cells were made a layer around the seminiferous tubules. Sertoli cells were seen as fewer tall elongated cells and the average width of Sertoli cells were 7.90±0.61 µm.
