To examine the possible role of microtubule-based transport in testicular function, we used immunofluorescent techniques to study the presence and localization of the microtubule mechanoenzymes cytoplasmic dynein (a slow-growing end-directed motor) and kinesin (a fast-growing end-directed motor) within rat testis. Cytoplasmic dynein immunofluorescence was observed in Sertoli cells during all stages of spermatogenesis, with a peak in apical cytoplasm during stages IX-XIV. Cytoplasmic dynein… CONTINUE READING
