Human Cap-phase Spermatid Electron Micrograph

Cap-phase spermatid (labelling with anti-SPANXa/d antibodies) staining was not observed associated with the nuclear envelope (ne) underlying the developing acrosome (a). However, gold particles (5 nm) were present on membrane whorls lying within a nuclear vacuole (NV) that opened into the subacrosomal space.
