The other germinal cells in this stage were primary spermatocytes in the zygotene and pachytene stage, which were clearly observed in the seminiferous epithelium.
The chromosomes in the pachytene stage of the prophase appear in the nucleus of the primary spermatocyte near the Sertoli cells (Fig.

TNF-[alpha] is expressed as a transmembrane protein in pachytene spermatocytes, round spermatids, and testicular macrophages [51].
Primary spermatocytes, stained with the anti-SCP3 antibody, were selected to evaluate the respective percentages of leptotene, zygotene, pachytene and diplotene stages.
The preleptotene spermatocytes enter prophase I of meiosis, transform into leptotene, zygotene, pachytene and diplotene cells, which then quickly finish meiosis I forming secondary spermatocytes.
In these spermatocytes, the chromatin in the nucleus of the pachytene oocytes, even more condensed, takes the shape of an umbrella (Fig.
In the case of non-irradiated larvae, relative sizes of chromosome pairs in pachytene cells were measured using the computer application MicroMeasure version 3.3 (available at www.colostate.edu/Depts/Biology/Micromeasure) (Reeves & Tear 2000).

Disruptions in the expression pattern of GLD-1 can lead to pachytene (meiotic prophase) progression defects that can result in germ line tumors, meiotic entry defects, and aberrant germ line sex determination [19, 20].
A difference at the ultrastructural level appears as formation of meiosis-specific synaptonemal complexes (SCs), the ultrastructures that join homologous chromosomes into bivalents during pachytene stage of meiotic prophase I in the vast majority of eukaryotes.
