The cell–cell junctions of mammalian testes: I. The adhering junctions of the seminiferous epithelium represent special differentiation structures

Abstract

The seminiferous tubules and the excurrent ducts of the mammalian testis are physiologically separated from the mesenchymal tissues and the blood and lymph system by a special structural barrier to paracellular translocations of molecules and particles: the “blood–testis barrier”, formed by junctions connecting Sertoli cells with each other and with… (More)
