Group B STs, containing mostly spermatids and some immature spermatozoa, show significant differences of PCs intensities compared with groups A and C (P<0.05; means ± S.D.; n = 5). The data support the IMS results of the PC (16:0/18:1). Moreover, the testes of OC males also contain significantly more PCs than those of SM and BC males (P<0.05). SM = small male; OC = orange claw male; BC = blue claw male. Bar = S.D.; * = significant difference at P<0.05.
