Figure 3: Histological architecture of testis of group I (control) and test groups (II–IV) at various observational days (1, 7, 15 and 30). When compared to control group II animals showed emptied lumen, disintegrated epithelium, vacuole formation, and spermatogonia falling away from Sertoli cells. Leydig cells were found dilated and vacuolation was evident. On the 15th day of observation, most seminiferous tubules lost luminal area (no lumen) and spermatids and spermatocytes were completely disoriented (magnification ×400; H and E). Types A and B spermatogonia (A and B); Spermatocytes (S); Round (R) and Elongated (E) spermatid; Lumen (I); Sertoli cells (SC); Leydig cells (LC)
