Figure 1: Vasectomy induces morphological changes and increased apoptosis in the testis. (a) Hematoxylin and eosin staining of testis from vasectomized and sham-operated. Control, one representative of sham-operated control (note that sham-operated controls at each time point postvasectomy had the same apoptotic pattern). Mice isolated on the indicated day after surgery. The scale bar represents 50 μm; (b) Analysis of apoptotic status of mouse testes at different time points postvasectomy by TUNEL. Apoptotic cells with fragmented DNA display green signal. Control, one representative of sham-operated control (note that sham-operated controls at each time point postvasectomy had the same apoptotic pattern). The scale bar represents 50 μm.
