Figure 3: (a) Photomicrograph of a control adult rat ovary showing collagen fibers (arrows) appearing blue in color surrounding the ovarian follicles. Also, there are collagen fibers (C) within the ovarian stroma in between the follicles (MT, ×400). (b) Photomicrograph of an adult rat ovary treated with green tea only for 14 days showing collagen fibers (arrow) surrounding ovarian follicle. Others appear (C) within the ovarian stroma (MT, ×400). (c) Photomicrograph of an adult rat ovary treated with MSG for 14 days showing mild increase in the amount of collagen fibers surrounding the ovarian follicles and within the ovarian stroma. There are wide spaces (S) in between the collagen fibers (arrow) surrounding the degenerated ovarian follicles. Multiple vacuoles (V) appear separating collagen fibers within the ovarian stroma (MT, ×400). (d) Photomicrograph of an adult rat ovary treated with MSG and green tea for 14 days showing collagen fibers (arrow) surrounding the ovarian follicle (MT, ×400). MSG, monosodium glutamate.
