The convergent point of the endocytic and autophagic pathways in leydig cells

ABSTRACTEndocytic tracers and marker enzyme of lysosomes were used in the present study to analyze the processes of autophagocytosis and endocytosis, and the convergent point of these two pathways in Leydig cells. The endocytic and autophagic compartments can be easily identified in Leydig cells, which makes easier to define the stages of two pathways than… (More)
