Testicular biopsies from normal men and from men with testicular disorders were examined by immunohistochemistry for the presence of the inhibin-alpha subunit using two different antisera. Immunoreactive inhibin-alpha (irI-alpha) was found in Leydig cells in normal, oligospermic, and azoospermic men and in men with Klinefelter's syndrome, and it was also found in a Leydig cell tumour. hCG-treatment apparently increased the amount of immunoreactive inhibin-alpha, particularly in Leydig cells… CONTINUE READING
