The synthesis of sulphatoxygalactosylacylalkylglycerol (SGG) is a differentiation marker of mammalian spermatogenesis. Maximal sulphation is observed in rat testis at about 20 days after birth and rapidly declines to low levels as the testis matures. The present data show that this decline in SGG synthesis is due to the appearance of an inhibitor of… CONTINUE READING
