Human Reproduction (Part-2)

The origin and development of the sperm cells within the male reproductive organs, the testes is known as spermatogenesis. The structure of testes is composed of numerous thin, tightly coiled tubules known as the seminiferous tubules; the sperm cells are produced within the walls of the tubules. Within the walls of the tubules, there are many randomly scattered cells, called Sertoli cells, which function to support and nourish the immature sperm cells by giving them nutrients and blood products.
