In frozen sections of testes from 20-day-old rats, alpha-smooth muscle (SM) isoactin was prominently immunostained in the peritubular tissue and in vascular walls, but not in areas populated by germinal cells, interstitial cells, or Sertoli cells. Peritubular myoid cell (PMC)-enriched preparations were isolated by two different procedures involving our previously published sequential enzymatic treatment ("conventional peritubular cell [PC]-enriched preparation") and by density-gradient… CONTINUE READING
