Histological analysis of submaxillary gland in male rats. (A-D) Entire male rats exhibited predominantly serous acini (circle), lower quantity of mucous acini (short arrow) and bigger ducts (long arrow). (B-E) Bilateral orchiectomy caused atrophic ducts (long arrow) and increased lipid vacuoles (yellow square). (C-F) Immunocastration also caused moderate atrophy of ducts in SMG. Scale bars = 10 μM. A-C: original magnification 200 × ; D-E: original magnification 400 × ; Tissues were stained with hematoxylin–eosin
