  • The sperm produced in the seminiferous tubules pass through the rete testis, efferent ducts, and epididymis. The epididymis has three distinct regions known as caput, corpus, and cauda. The transit through the epididymis is an essential process in sperm maturation. The lumen of each epididymal region has a unique fluid composition regulated by many ion channels and transporters in the epithelial cells. The objective of this study was to map the sites of localization of ion channels ENaC and… CONTINUE READING
