The morphology, histochemical properties, and ultrastructure of the pigmented cells may indicate that the melanogenesis takes place in these cells, and then, the melanin is transferred to pinealocytes and interstitial cells
. This process of melanin transference has already been suggested in cat  and bat .
of Cajal (ICCs) have been the focus of lively debate for a number of years.
in the urinary tract, where are they and what do they do?
Studies of testicular interstitial cells
and seminiferous tubules in fetuses and/or patients with PBS are scarce in the literature.

In the current study, collagenase and hyaluronidase digestion was used to isolate pig testicular interstitial cells
from pig testes.
Loss of epithelial polarity and gain of interstitial cells
are characteristic marks of EMT [17, 18], including loss of expression and function of E-cadherin protein and other epithelial markers and overexpression of interstitial cell
markers like N-cadherin and vimentin.

of Cajal in the murine intestine," American Journal of Physiology-Cell Physiology, vol.
Histological measurements like thickness of testicular capsule and seminiferous epithelium, diameter of seminiferous tubules and its lumen, diameter and percentage area of interstitial cells
in each testis were measured with the help of automated image analysis system Image J(r), version 1.46 (Research Services Branch, NIMH, Bethesda, Maryland, USA).
