Comparative structural organization of testis and patterns of spermatogenesis; comparative endocrine regulation of structure and functions of accessory somatic or sertoli and interstitial leydig cells; comparative structural, chemical and functional aspects of somatic cells (sertoli cells and leydig cells), and their interactions with germ cells - synthesis of steroid hormones and polypeptides; junctions and blood - testis barrier and transport of substances and cytoskeletal elements; endocrine, paracrine and autocrine functions of secretary products of sertoli, germ, pertitubular and leydig cells and their regulation - polypeptides and their endocrine and paracrine functions and regulation of their expression; phagocytic activity and its regulation and functional significance; composition and function of seminiferous fluid; functional relations between sertoli cells, germ cells and leydig cells; concluding remarks and future perspectives.
