Mouse testes contain a unique form of cytochrome c. As demonstrated by the indirect immunofluorescence technique, the testis-specific cytochrome c is detectable in the primary spermatocyte and in cell types comprising the later stages of spermatogenesis. Interstitial cells, Sertoli cells, and spermatogonia contain the somatic form of cytochrome c, as does heart muscle.
