The capsule was divided into three annular layers, and the parenchyma consisted of tubular compartments and interstitial tissue. The tubular compartments were comprised of the seminiferous tubules, straight seminiferous tubules and rete testis, without any distinct boundary tissue between them.
If drainage within the lymphatic and/or venous component is disrupted then fluid will move out into the interstitial tissue [1].
(2013) experimented with Chinese Dragon-Li cats and administered As2 O3 along with resveratrol, the protective effects of resveratrol increased the glutathione peroxidase activity and methylation of arsenic which is excreted in urine thus reducing the arsenic burden in renal tissue.27 The involvement of interstitial tissue and destruction of tubules with sodium arsenate was suggestive of the progressive kidney damage; however, vitamins C and E decreased the interstitial fibrous tissue, indicating recovery from arsenic induced injury.
Interstitial tissue was observed between the lobules (Fig.
