In this paper we present the state of knowledge on cell-cell interactions in the testis of two groups of anamniote vertebrates--teleosts and elasmobranchs--which include most fish. In these fish, the structural organization of the testis differs fundamentally from that which characterizes amniotes in which the germinal tissue is located in tubules open at both ends and consists of a permanent population of Sertoli cells associated with successive stages of germ cell development. In fish, the… CONTINUE READING
