Sertoli cells from mammalian testis are key cells involved in development and maintenance of stem cell spermatogonia as well as secretion of a chloride- and potassium-rich fluid into the lumen of seminiferous tubules. Using whole-cell patch clamp experiments, a novel chloride current was identified. It is activated only in the presence of an extracellular… CONTINUE READING
