Study of Interstitial Leydig Cells In Mammalian Testes
European Journal of Molecular & Clinical Medicine,
2020, Volume 7, Issue 11, Pages 6929-6934
Leydig cells (SLCs), located in the testicular interstitial compartment in the mammalian testes, are capable of differentiating to testosterone-synthesizing Leydig cells (LCs), thus providing a new strategy for treating testosterone deficiency. However, no previous reports have identified and cultured SLCs derived from the pig. The aim of the current study was to isolate, identify, and culture SLCs from pigs.
