Earlier studies in multiple epithelia have shown that cell-cell actin-based adherens junction (AJ) dynamics are regulated, at least in part, by the interplay of kinases and phosphatases that determines the intracellular phosphoprotein content. Yet it is virtually unknown regarding the role of protein kinases in Sertoli-germ cell AJ dynamics in the seminiferous epithelium of the testis. To address this issue, an in vitro coculture system utilizing Sertoli and germ cells was used to study the… CONTINUE READING
