Immunolocalization of IL-6 and IL-10 in the testicular tissue of testicular dysfunction rat treated with secretome

Surya Agus Prihatno, Yosua Kristian Adi, Teguh Budipitojo.


Objective: This study was carried out to find out the immunolocalization of Interleukin 6 (IL-6) and Interleukin 10 (IL-10) in the testicular tissue of testicular dysfunction rat treated with secretome from human umbilical stem cells.
Materials and methods: Rats were induced with cisplatin for testicular dysfunction condition. After that, the rats were grouped into two categories and were treated with secretome at 0.2 and 0.5 ml/kg BW once every week for 4 weeks. One week later, after the secretome treatment, the rats were sacrificed for histological evaluation using the immunohistochemical method. The preparation slides were examined using a light microscope and were analyzed descriptively and quantitatively.
Results: There were no IL-6 and IL-10 immunoreactivities seen in the testicular tissue after cispla┬Čtin induction. However, the immunoreactivities of IL-6 and IL-10 were detected after secretome treatment, with both dosages of 0.2 and 0.5 ml/kg BW. These immunoreactivities were detected in the spermatogonia, spermatid/luminal tissue of seminiferous tubule, spermatogenic cells, and Leydig cells. In the cell calculation, the numbers of IL-6 immunoreactive cells were higher at the lower secretome dosage. In contrast, the numbers of IL-10 immunoreactive cells were higher at the higher secretome dosage.
Conclusion: IL-6 and IL-10 can be localized in the testicular tissue of testicular dysfunction rat after secretome treatment.

Key words: IL-6; IL-10; immunohistochemistry; secretome; testicular dysfunction rat
