Mouse spermatogenic clone development by stage

The mouse spermatogenic cycle contains twelve stages (I–XII). Each stage is temporally unique, and the stages in the diagram represent the relative time each stage lasts in the mouse.


Each stage in the diagram is shown in cross-sectional, longitudinal and whole-mount perspectives (labelled in stage VII).


Three putative spermatogonial clones are highlighted in blue, red and green.


The dotted lines in the whole-mount perspective indicate the planes of the cross section and longitudinal section views.


Stage VII, the red cell is in the vertical line and therefore appears in the cross-sectional view. A green cell is in the horizontal line, so is observed in the longitudinal section view.


The development of three putative clones (blue, red and green) through one cycle of the seminiferous epithelium is shown.
