Abstract

Two types of inter-Sertoli junctions, occluding junctions and septate-like junctions, interconnect the Sertoli cells of the human testis. This study demonstrates the presence of a septate-like junction in human tissue, and this junction is septate in freeze fracture replicas, in thin sections and in lanthanum tracer experiments.
