In higher primates, development of the adult population of Leydig cells has received little attention. Here, the emergence of 3β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (HSD3B) positive cells in the testis of the rhesus monkey was examined during spontaneous puberty, and correlated with S-phase labeling in the interstitium at this critical stage of development.
