Caption: Prostate gland. Light micrograph of a transverse section through a mammalian prostate gland, an organ found in males that produces fluids to aid the reproductive process. This section of the prostate does not cover the ejaculatory ducts or central urethra, but shows the prostate glandular tissue, which produces a fluid, rich in citric acid and prostaglandins (local hormones). The prostatic secretion makes up 30 percent of the volume of the secretion ejaculated. Magnification: x14 when printed at 10 centimetres across.
