Stage-specific cellular regulation of inhibin alpha-subunit mRNA expression in the rat seminiferous epithelium.


To find out the local regulation of inhibin production and its possible paracrine role in the seminiferous epithelium, inhibin alpha mRNA levels were measured in sequential 1 mm segments of rat seminiferous tubules accurately staged by transillumination technique. Highest levels were found at stages XIV-I-IV of the cycle, and lowest at stages VI-VIIb of the… (More)
