Changes in the level of the gene transcript of heat shock protein (hsp)60, a mitochondrial chaperonin, during the cycle of rat seminiferous epithelium and its cellular localization were studied. The seminiferous epithelium showed a cell type-specific expression of hsp60. Immunostaining of adult rat testis revealed localization in Sertoli and Leydig cells. In germ cells, mitochondria of spermatogonia and early primary spermatocytes were immunoreactive for hsp60. Mitochondria of all other germ… CONTINUE READING
