Figure 2: (a) Photomicrograph of a control adult rat ovary showing intense PAS-positive (magenta red) reaction in the surface epithelium (↓), in the zona granulosa (ZG) surrounding the follicles, and within the ovarian stroma (ST). There is a moderate reaction in oocytes (O).There is a strong reaction in the zona pellucida (↓↓) surrounding the oocyte (PAS, ×400). (b) Photomicrograph of an adult rat ovary treated with green tea only for 14 days showing intense PAS-positive reaction in the surface epithelium (↓), in the ZG surrounding the follicles, and within the ST. There is a strong reaction in the zona pellucida (↓↓) surrounding the oocyte. There is a moderate reaction in oocytes (PAS, ×400). (c) Photomicrograph of an adult rat ovary treated with MSG for 14 days showing moderate PAS-positive reaction in the ZG surrounding the follicles. There is a mild PAS-positive reaction within the ST. There is a weak reaction in the zona pellucida (↓↓) surrounding the oocyte that appear interrupted and within the oocyte in some follicles. Other degenerated follicles showed moderate PAS-positive reaction within their degenerated oocyte (DO) and their surrounding zona pelluicida (PAS, ×400). (d) Photomicrograph of an adult rat ovary treated with MSG and green tea for 14 days showing intense PAS-positive reaction in the surface epithelium (↓), in the ZG surrounding the follicles, and within the ST. There is a strong reaction in the zona pellucida (↓↓) surrounding the oocyte. There is a moderate reaction in oocytes. The cells forming the corpus luteum (CL) show moderate to strong PAS reaction (PAS, ×400). MSG, monosodium glutamate.
