  • The actions of two cytokines, tumor necrosis factor (TNF) and interleukin-1 (IL-1), on testosterone production by dispersed adult testis cells and purified Leydig cells in culture were studied. In one set of experiments, testis cells from adult (90-day-old) rats were enzymatically dispersed. In another set of experiments, the dispersed testis cells were placed on a Percoll density gradient and were centrifuged to yield purified (greater than 85%) Leydig cells. Both whole testis cells and… CONTINUE READING
