A new role for follicle-stimulating hormone in the regulation of calcium flux in Sertoli cells: inhibition of Na+/Ca++ exchange.


Elucidation of mechanisms regulating intracellular calcium levels in steroidogenic tissues is important for understanding control of cellular function. We have previously described FSH receptor-mediated flux of 45Ca++ into cultured rat Sertoli cells and receptor-enriched proteoliposomes via voltage-sensitive and voltage-independent calcium channels. In the… (More)
