these are support cells found on the outer portion of the seminiferous tubules and form the blood testes barrier sertoli cells
these cells are found in between the seminiferous tubules and produce testosterone leydig cells
name the cells of spermatogenesis spermatogoonium (4n), primiary spermatocyte (4n), secondary spermatocyte (2n), spermatid(n)
these cells absorb excess cytpolasm during spermatogenesis sertoli cells
these supporting cells form zonulae occludens (tight junctions) with each other near their base sertoli cells
what are some functions of sertoli cells they are stimulatd by FSH to secrete Abp, which increases local testosterone concentration. they absorb xs cytoplasm from developing sperm, and secrete fluid to nourish cells.

what substances do seminal vesicles make to nourish sperm? vitamin C, fructose, alakaline substance to neutralize acidity of vagina, and prostaglandins for sperm motility
which zone of the prostate gland has the highest likelihood of developing cancer? zone 1 (peripheral zone)
these accessory glands empty their secretions into the membranous urethra bulbourethral glands (cowpers glands)
