The germinal epithelium is very much thicker than before—about 0.38 mm.
The peritoneal epithelium in which they are placed is known as the germinal epithelium.
Section through a small part of the middle region of the germinal epithelium of a rabbit seven days after birth.
The Wolffian duct is on one side in contact with the germinal epithelium.
The ridge contains a lumen, and is only connected with the germinal epithelium by a narrow wall of cells.
The greater part of the germinal epithelium forms anastomosing columns, separated by very thin tracts of stroma.
These masses of germinal epithelium (probably sections of branched trabecul) may be spoken of as nests.
These membranes closely resemble and sometimes are even continuous with trabecul which traverse the germinal epithelium.
The superficial layer is frequently (but erroneously) regarded as constituting the whole of the germinal epithelium.
In many instances normal nuclei of the germinal epithelium may be so observed within the ovum.
