Flashcards in Male Repro Histo Deck (13):
1

hormonal control of testes (3)

1. FSH - supports maturation of sertoli and leydig cells and maintains spermatogenesis

2. Leutinizing hormone - stimulates synthesis and release of testosterone by interstitial cells

3. Testosteron e maintians spermatogenesis, male duct morphology,

accessory sex gland function, secondary sex characteristics

1

prostatic eurethra morphology

 

membranous urethra

 

penile urethra 

prostatic - transitional epithelium

 

membranous urethra - pseudostratified columnar

 

penile - stratifed pseudostratified columanr 

3

phases of spermatogenesis

spermtocytogenesis - mitosis and maintaining stem cell population

meisosis/spermatocyte phase - primary spermatocytes becomes spermatids

spermiogenesis -  round spermatids become mature sperm 

4

prostatic concretions 

percipitate of prostatic secretions

5

branches of central erectile tissue arteries

helicine arteries

6

somatic cells that span the full thickness of the seminifrerous epithelium

contain mitochondira, rER, large golgi

Sertoli cells 

6

capsule surrounding the semiferous tubules, external to basement membrane containing 3-5 layers of myoid cells

tunica propria

7

ejaculatory duct cell morphology

simple columanr epithelium

smooth muscle coat

9

efferent ductules morpholgy

collumnar epithelium

scalloped border

basal cells regenerating epithelium

thin circular layer of smooth muscle

10

ductus epididymis cell morphology

pseuostratifeid columanr epithelium

branced steerocillia on tall principle cells

tall epithelial cells contian coated vesicles

thicker smooth muscle layers

11

ductus (vas) deferens cell morphology

columnar epitheilium with long microvili

3 muscle layers - longitudinal, circular, long

expands to form Ampulla of uctus

12

straight tbules epithelium consists only of  ___

empty into rete testes

sertoli cells

 

13

penile erectile tissues bound by

tunica albuginea
