Rat Sertoli cell clusterin, alpha 2-macroglobulin, and testins: biosynthesis and differential regulation by germ cells.


Clusterin, alpha 2-macroglobulin and testins are three novel Sertoli cell proteins whose physiological functions may be related to cell-cell interactions in the seminiferous epithelium of the testis. We have demonstrated the biosynthesis of clusterin, alpha 2-macroglobulin, and testins by Sertoli cells in vitro using pulse-chase labeling analysis. For… (More)
