The present study focuses on the characterization of the ultrastructure in the oviduct of Chinese soft-shelled turtle.
Second, this is a novel study focusing on the identification of exosomes in reptile species.
Localization of antibody in different months shows that the exosomes shedding from the epithelial cells are more in sperm storage period as compared to breeding period.
Transmission electromicrographs give the novel evidence about the existence of exosomes in this species
