below this is a two-storey interstitial space for sludge pools.
Remarkably, abnormal spermatozoa were much higher in the group received 5mg than that of 10mg.The histological profile revealed degenerative changes in testes of treated pigeons with elongated and irregular diameter of seminiferous tubules, degenerative of Sertoli cells, severe atrophy of Leydig cells and pronounced decrease in the interstitial space. However, in the treated groups the stages of spermatogenesis appear unaffected, accompanied withimmature and malformed spermatozoa in the lumen.To conclude, oral administration of thiram may affect the seasonal reproduction of pigeon by disturbing the histo-architecture of testes and sperm quality under long photoperiod.
This system functions through fluid transport through the interstitial space, which is regulated by aquaporin 4 (AQP 4) channels in the astrocytic perivascular extensions.
The organ is a "previously unappreciated fluid-filled interstitial space, draining to lymph nodes and supported by a complex network of thick collagen bundles," according to the study's authors.
For example, between interstitial space and the blood vessels, fluid is exchanged; therefore, the steady state incompressible form of the continuity equation must be modified as Equation 3:

The UVC measurements indicate that only a fraction of energy irradiating the face of a coil make it deep into the coil's interstitial space. This can be attributed to several factors including energy loss based upon Newton's inverse square law, reduced line of sight due to tight fin spacing and bends and aluminum fin adsorption of approximately 26% of energy (Kowalski 2011) with every reflection.
For this issue of Surface, Perron helped select the feature subjects--including Kanye West, Tom Sachs, and Cali Thornhill DeWitt--and shepherded the stories alongside our editor-in-chief, bringing together creative minds whose worlds thrive in the interstitial space between visual art and music.
On the other hand, gradual decreases in the interstitial space were seen in the testis of hypoxic groups of rats of weeks 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 but an increase in the interstitial space was only observed in week 6 of hypoxic exposure as compared to the same period of time in the area of low altitude.
