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.

A study demonstrated in 1983 that spermatogenic cell was the radiosensitive tissue in testis and constituted 70% of the normal testicular weight.25 Therefore, it seems logical that germ cell loss would lead to a decrease in testicular mass, and it explains the volume loss with radiation in our model.25 Testosterone had no statistically significant effect on testicular volume within the two- month study period.
