We observed that peritubular myoid cells in the human testis are immunoreactive for angiotensin II (AngII) receptors (AT1R) and explored AngII actions in cultured human testicular peritubular cells (HTPCs). In response to AngII they contracted within minutes. The AT1R-blocker losartan blocked contraction, implying involvement of AngII and AT1R in(More)
Proliferation, differentiation and death of ovarian cells ensure orderly functioning of the female gonad during the reproductive phase, which ultimately ends with menopause in women. These processes are regulated by several mechanisms, including local signaling via neurotransmitters. Previous studies showed that ovarian non-neuronal endocrine cells produce(More)
