Mouse Epididymis Histology

Sperm released from the rete testis enter the efferent ducts, travel through the caput, corpus and caudal epididymal regions, during which time they undergo epididymal maturation. The epididymis ends at the vas deferens (not shown). (Stain - Periodic acid-Schiff) stained epididymal sections; S = spermatozoa; scale bar = 100 µm.
