1

Spermatogenesis begins in the outermost layer of cells called the

seminiferous tubules

2

Spermatogenesis had 4 parts

Mitosis
Meiosis 1
Meiosis 2
Spermiogenesis

3

Step 1 of Spermatogenesis

stem cells called spermatogonia divide by mitosis to produce daughter cells
one daughter cell differentiates into primary spermatocyte

4

Step 2 of Spermatogenesis

primary spermatocytes are the cells that begin Meiosis 1 and divide into secondary spermatocytes

5

Step 3 of Spermatogenesis

secondary spermatocytes are cells that begin Meiosis 2 and become spermatids or gametes

6

Step 4 of Spermatogenesis

spermatids undergo spermiogenesis (maturation) and become spermatozoa or sperm
