Spermatogenesis and its endocrine regulation

  author={R{\"u}diger Winfried Schulz and Takeshi Miura},
  journal={Fish Physiology and Biochemistry},
Three major phases compose spermatogenesis: mitotic proliferation of spermatogonia, meiosis of spermatocytes, and spermiogenesis, the restructuring of spermatids into flagellated spermatozoa. The process is fuelled by stem cells that, when dividing, either self-renew or produce spermatogonia that are committed to proliferation, meiosis, and spermiogenesis. During all phases, germ cells are in close contact with and require the structural and functional support of Sertoli cells. In contrast to… CONTINUE READING
