Spermatogenic Cell

Spermatogenic Cell

 

one of a group of cells that develop in the walls of the seminiferous tubules. Spermatogenic cells include spermatogonia, spermatocytes, and spermatids—all of which are transitional forms between primary sexual cells and spermatozoa.

Spermatogenic cell density and sperm quality increased because increased antioxidant capacity protected spermatozoa against peroxidative damage in healthy rats.
2]-induced oxidative stress in a dose-dependent manner, (2) improved the mean weight of the cryptorchid testis, (3) maintained sperm counts, motility, and spermatogenic cell density, (4) decreased levels of 8-OHdG and increased levels of SOD, demonstrating its antioxidant effect, (5) significantly increased Nrf2 and HO-1, and (6) significantly decreased apoptosis.
Effects of testosterone on spermatogenic cell populations in the adult rat.
Reduced fertility likely results from several factors, including compromised genetic integrity of oocytes, poor sperm quality, low spermatogenic cell density, and low testosterone level of male rats (3).
Intense staining was observed in almost all the spermatogenic cell types (from spermatogonia to elongated spermatids) in testis sections from CP-treated rats.
The gene encodes a RNA binding protein that localizes to the nucleus of all spermatogenic cell types (4,20).
A study demonstrated in 1983 that spermatogenic cell was the radiosensitive tissue in testis and constituted 70% of the normal testicular weight.
Spermatogenic cell series in seminiferous tubule wall, spermatogonium, primary spermatocytes, spermatid cell, and Sertoli cell were found normal and comparable to the untreated control (Figure 4a-d).
In the testes of some animals in the ANE group, seminiferous tubules showed atrophy and it was impossible to identify the spermatogenic cell line (Figure 1 C).
Various parameters related to sperm quality--including motility, concentration, and spermatogenic cell density, among other measures of sperm health--were also assessed.
