Detection of the neurohypophysial hormones vasopressin (AVP) and oxytocin (OT) in the testis of several species has led to the proposal that these peptides may have a physiological role in the regulation of testicular function. Therefore, we investigated whether the contractile myoid cells of rat seminiferous tubules express functional receptors for AVP or(More)
The testis is a complex organ in which local control is achieved by signalling between its constituent cells. Herein we describe the responses of cultured rat testicular cells and a mouse Sertoli cell-line to stimulation by endothelin and ATP, and elsewhere we have shown that rat peritubular myoid cells possess phosphoinositidase C-coupled V1a-vasopressin(More)
