Abstract

Histochemical study of the epididymis in rat carried out in both prepubertal and postpubertal age groups. Age related changes in the presence of carbohydrates, basic proteins, tyrosine and lipids were recorded in the three regions of epididymis. The peritubular connective tissue and lining epithelium contained lipids which increased with age.
