The role of sublingual and submandibular glands in the testicular functions in mice musmusculus
In the present investigation, the effect of salivariadenectomy on the testis of mice with respect to various parameters like histology, spermatogenesis and fertility test was studied. For this purpose, pregnant female mice on the 10th day of gestation were subjected to sublingualectomy sialoadenectomy and salivariadenectomy. The 10 days old male offsprings of of above operated mother were again subjected tosublingualectomy sialoadenectomy and salivariadenectomy. The control groups were sham operated. They were sacrificed at the age of 45, 60 and 90 days. The study report showed that histological structure of testis was changed, spermatogenesis was adversely affected and reduction in the fertility rate was observed in the all operated groups as compared to control groups.
