The adult mammalian testis performs two important functions, spermatogenesis and male sex hormone production. It is an organ structurally designed to produce the haploid male gametes from diploid postnatal germ-line stem cells, i.e. type A by: 2. The mammalian testis. Author (s): Setchell, B. P. Book: The mammalian testis. + pp. Abstract: This comprehensive account of the structure and function of the mammalian testis is intended mainly for honours and postgraduate students, but should also be of value to working by:   Mammalian Testes. The testes are important male reproductive glands that are generally located within the body of vertebrates. Sexually mature mammals typically possess a special sac called the scrotum which houses the testes, and a few varieties of the animals are capable of .

the mammalian testis-determining gene Sry a quarter of a century ago (Gubbay et al. ; Sinclair et al. ; Koopman et al. ) provided an entry point to molec-ular studies of testis development. Since that time, much has been learned regarding the genetic networks responsi-ble for orchestrating testis development, far more so than.   The production of mature and functionally competent sperm from three phylogenetically different species indicates that testis tissue grafting will be applicable to many different mammalian .   The comparative anatomy of the blood-supply of the mammalian testis.

The mammalian testis is covered by a protective fibrous capsule, the tunica albuginea, composed mainly of collagen with some fibroblastic and smooth muscle elements. The thickness, composition and.

Thereafter t h e book is devided in 10 chapters, which cover the following topics: development of the testes; vascular supply and drainage of the testis; nerves of the testis and scrotum; the scrotum and thermoregulation; endocrinology of the testis; spermatogenesis; fluid secretion and the entry into the tubules; metabolism in the testis; endocrinological control of the testis; and naturally occurring and induced dysfunctions of the testis.   The Testis, Volume II: Biochemistry focuses on the study of the biochemistry of mammalian testis. Composed of contributions of authors, the book starts with the endocrinology of the testis. Topics covered include testicular estrogens and androgens; the effect of age on testicular steroidogenesis; and endocrine regulation of : A. D. Johnson.   Books Design Food Music & Film Video like humans and most other mammalian You'd think testicle evolution would be low-hanging fruit—but it turns . This book is a comprehensive, multi-authored work on the structure and function of the mammalian testis. The approach emphasizes gene expression, translation and production of specific gene products and the cellular and molecular regulation of these fundamental processes. Rather than provide a global survey of all aspects of male reproduction, this book stresses specific mechanisms that.
