Androgen
Secretion of hormones—testosterone (androgen or masculinizing hormone) by interstitial or Leydig cells and inhibin, by sustentacular or Sertoli cells.
Bulbourethral
Like the seminal vesicles, these glands secrete an alkaline fluid that is important for counteracting the acid present in the male urethra and the female vagina
Epididymis
It serves as one of the ducts through which sperm pass in their journey from the testis to the exterior.
It contributes to the maturation of sperm, which spend from 1 to 3 weeks in this segment of the duct system.
It secretes a small part of the seminal fluid (semen).
Gamete
g
Genital
Genital ducts convey sperm to the outside of the body
Genitalia
reproductive organs
Gonads
sex glands in which reproductive cells are formed; ovaries in women, testes in men
Penis
slightly bulging structure formed by the distal end of the corpus spongiosum; covered by the foreskin in uncircumcised males
Prostrate
lies just below the bladder in the male; secretes a fluid that constitutes about 30% of the seminal fluid volume; helps activate sperm and helps them maintain motility
Scrotum
pouchlike sak that contains the testes
Semen
ejaculate from the penis that contains spermatozoa plus fluids from the testes, seminal vesicles, bulbourethral glands, and prostate
Seminal Vesicla
d
Sertoli Cells
Irregular elongated sustentacular have both a supportive and a hormone secretory function important for the developing germ cells
Spermatogensis
the production of spermatozoa (sperm), the male gametes, or reproductive cells. The seminiferous tubules produce the sperm.
Spermatozoa
Sperm,
testes
The gonads of the male are the testes.
Testosterone
male sex hormone produced by interstitial cells in the testes; the “masculinizing hormone”
