Throughout spermatogenesis, germ cells move progressively from the basal to the adluminal compartment, which is accompanied by continual disassembly and reassembly of intercellular junctions suggesting germ cell movement is composed of intermittent phases of junction disassembly and reassembly. A study was performed to correlate the expression of junctional-complex components (such as zonula occludens-1 [ZO-1], a tight-junction component protein) and nonjunctional complex components (such as… CONTINUE READING
