Live imaging reveals novel dynamic events in transitioning mouse gonocytes

Jarvis Sheba , Fraser Scott E , Winston Robert M , Readhead Carol W

Introduction: Early developmental events in the testis set the scene for future spermatogenesis. After birth, gonocytes, the precursors to type-A spermatogonia reproliferate and become transiently motile in a poorly understood process. Aberrations are associated with altered fertility or pre-malignant states. Gonocytes exist as overlapping subpopulations at varying developmental stages, which makes them difficult to study.Materials and methods: Transgeni...
