Aquaporin-9 is expressed in rat Sertoli cells
and interacts with the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator.
Light microscopic, immunocytochemical and ultrastructural study of a case of Sertoli cell
tumor of the testis.
Proliferation of Sertoli cells
during development of the human testis assessed by stereological methods.
The resulting cells exhibited many of the characteristics of embryonic Sertoli cells
, including aggregating, forming tubular structures similar to the seminiferous tubules found in the testis, and secreting the typical Sertoli cell
Neonatal hypothyroidism causes delayed Sertoli cell
maturation in rats treated with propylthiouracil: evidence that the Sertoli cell
controls testis growth.
The central role of Sertoli cells
Evidence that androgens and oestrogens, as well as follicle-stimulating hormone, can alter Sertoli cell
number in the neonatal rat.
When SMAD3 is absent, Sertoli cells
take longer to respond to testosterone.
observed in some of the tubules were vacuolated preformed spermatids.
It is verified that the AAS did not significantly alter the numbers of the cell types evaluated; significant differences were not found either between the treated groups (STr and TTr) and the controls (SCo and TCo) as for the number of type-A spermatogonia and the number of Sertoli cells
Like the Sertoli cells
of the testis, these cells are thought to provide support to the gametogenic cell.
Air-dried slides were stained with the May-Grunwald-Giemsa stain (BDH, Merck Limited, Mumbai, India) and reported as normal spermatogenesis, hypospermatogenesis, maturation arrest or only Sertoli cells
