luteinizing hormone (LH) in the male Interstitial cell stimulating hormone (ICSH)
in the female, an acute rise triggers ovulation. In the male, where LH is called interstitial cell stimulating hormone (ICSH) it stimulates production of testosterone luteinizing hormone
a type of cell division by which germ cells (eggs and sperm) are produced. Meiosis involves a reduction in the amount of genetic material meiosis
process by chich a cell duplicates the chromosomes in its cell nucleus, in order to generate two, identical, daughter nuclei mitosis

doughnut shaped, surounds urethra below the bladder, it secretes a thin, milky, alkaline fluid which neutralizes semen, accounts for 30% of semen volume, enhances sperm motility prostate gland
located below the prostate gland, responds to sexual stimulation, secretes mucus-like fluid, often called pre-ejaculate, protects sperm from damage, accounts for less than 5% of semen volume, also called cowpers gland bulbourethral gland
slightly alkaline, contains nutrients and prostaglandens, enhance sperm cell survival and movement through female reproductive tract semen
cylindrical organ, conveys urine and semen, specializes in becoming erect penis
corpora cavernosa a pair of dorsally located cylinders
