Corpus epididymidis tissues showed low activity of LDH, as well as a low reactivity was also observed along the connective tissues of epidydimal support.
On the other hand, in rat, rabbit and sheep the highest total protein concentration was observed mainly in proximal and distal corpus epididymidis and the lowest levels occurred in cauda epididymidis (Riar et al.
