elongation stage spermatid
individualization stage spermatid
male germ cell nucleus
In PSMG1f01807 homozygous testes, there are no individualized sperms and the elongation stage spermatids exhibit nuclear-shaping defects (some are doughnut shaped and some are bent at one end like a walking stick) when compared to controls.
