Testicular organogenesis in the fetal calf: interstitial endocrine (Leydig) cell development.


The development of the interstitial endocrine (Leydig) cells of the fetal testis in the calf is described and correlated with a swelling reaction of the gubernaculum and normal, prenatal descent of the testis. An hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (HSD) procedure is used to determine the onset of functional activity for the interstitial endocrine cells (IEC). The… (More)
