Cytogenic Epithelium of the testis, 400x
- Cytogenic epithelium is found only in the testis, lining the
tubules. It is hard to classify morphologically. Functionally it is
cytogenic as it is a layer of spermatogonia (with various supporting cells)
that eventually, through mitosis, meiosis, and spermiogenesis "produces"
spermatocytes, i.e. cells, as its epithelial product. This epithelium will
be beaten to death in the male reproductive system carousel. Don't worry
about it now.
