  1. The data are presented as the mean ± SEM. Types of degeneration tubular in each treatment [CAP, 10c, inv(10c), 11e and AP] were compared to the control (C), and significant differences as assessed through one-way ANOVA followed by the Tukey test as a post hoc test (* p < 0.05). Normal tubules (T1); hypospermatogenic tubules (T2); arrested maturation tubules (T3); tubules containing spermatogonia and Sertoli cells or Sertoli-cell-only tubules (T4). C, control; CAP, captopril; (inv)10c, containing the inverted BPP-10c sequence; 10c, BPP-10c; 11e, BPP-11e; AP, BPP-AP
