CBZ acts more specifically on the stiffening of blood-testis barrier junctions, impacting on germ cell migration, whereas IPR is more deleterious to meiosis.
In these tubules, it appeared that the reorganization of the seminiferous epithelium began in the tubular periphery, with Sustentocytes cells and spermatogonia (stem cells) resting on the basement membrane, and the reestablishment of the blood-testis barrier (Figs.
