Detection of apoptotic markers in cells of the testes after irradiation and TJ107 treatment. Spermatogenic cell apoptosis was assessed at day 120 in each group. Group A a, Group B b, Group C c and Group D d histological detection showed TUNEL staining in the testicular sections. Erratic round-shaped black areas in the seminiferous tubules indicate TUNEL-positive cells. Bar = 100 μm. e Expression of Fas, Fas ligand (FasL), and caspase8 mRNA in mouse testes of each group at 120 days. Calculation of Relative mRNA intensity was done and the expression in the control group for each point was set to 1. The data are presented as mean ± standard deviation (n = 10). Asterisks indicate p < 0.05
