Figure 2: Photomicrographs showing the histopathological alterations in the testis of mice after the exposure of 1 mg/kg/day dose of aroclor 1254 for 7, 14, 21 and 28 d as compared control (H & E, 100 ×). (A) Control revealed the normal testis with Leydig cells (LC), spermatozoa (SP), seminiferous tubules (ST), lumen (L). (B) After 7 d exposure: MDTA, DGE. (C) After 14 d exposure: AST, ATST. (D) After 21 d exposure: AST, MDTA, SS, vacuoles (V). (E) After 28 d exposure: Atrophy in the seminiferous tubules (AST), loss of spermatogenic cells (LSC), SS, MDTA, necrosis (N), SNST.
