A subset of olfactory receptors (ORs) is expressed in mammalian male germ cells. Recent studies on human and mouse sperm have suggested that calcium signaling via a testicular OR regulates sperm flagellar motility. However, it remains to be determined at what stages testicular ORs are expressed during spermatogenesis and whether each germ cell expresses one or multiple ORs. Here we examined the developmental expression profiles of several mouse testicular OR genes using an in situ hybridization… CONTINUE READING
