Intermediate values were observed for the initial segment (7.38[+ or -]0.61 U/100 mg tissue) and the caput epididymidis (6.11[+ or -]1.27 U/100 mg tissue) (Fig.
These results indicated that absorption of fluid deriving from the testis was higher in the caput epididymidis and also that testicular fluid contributed directly to the high protein content found in this region (Riar et al.).
Moreover, protein content was seen to be high in the epididymal plasma obtained from the caput epididymidis of bulls and even was higher in the proximal corpus (Crabo, 1965).
