Redundancy of the effect of TGFbeta1 and beta-NGF on the second meiotic division of rat spermatocytes.

Abstract

We have previously shown that in cocultures of late pachytene/diplotene spermatocytes (PS/DS) with Sertoli cells, beta-nerve growth factor (beta-NGF) or transforming growth factor (TGFbeta1) regulates the second meiotic division by blocking secondary spermatocytes in metaphase II, and thereby lowers round spermatid formation. In this study, we raised the… (More)
