Stage I (a) shows type A spermatogonia (A), leptotene spermatocytes (L), pachytene primary spermatocytes (P), round spermatids (R), and Sertoli cells (S).
This study was designed to evaluate the left testis morphology, germ cell apoptosis, sperm count, the expression of Sertoli cell TJ proteins (Occludin, Claudin-11, and ZO1), changes in cytokine (TGF-[beta]3 and TNF-[alpha]) and T levels in the left testicular tissue, and GnRH, FSH, LH, T, INHB, and antisperm antibody (AsAb) serum levels.
[38] reported that the seminiferous tubules exert a local regulatory effect on Leydig cells function through its suppression by inhibitory peptide produced by Sertoli cells. In the present study, Ginkgo biloba treated I/R group showed insignificant changes in free testosterone level compared to I/R group, together with preserved Leydig cell count compared to I/R group, which is similar to Kanter [15], who found that Ginkgo biloba increased testosterone level compared to I/R group and suggested that Ginkgo biloba could be protective against ischemia/reperfusion induced testicular damage by scavenging the free radicals.

Several cell types were essential for spermatogenesis in the testis: germ cells, Sertoli cells, peritubular myoid cells, and ALCs [30].
Caption: Figure 4: A section of the tumor shows the solid component of the tumor composed of Sertoli cells. Small tubular formation is noted in the solid component.
The seminiferous epithelium contains spermatogenic and sustentocytes (Sertoli cells), responsible for spermatogenesis (Junqueira & Carneiro, 2005; Jenkins et al., 2007; Netter, 2011).
