This book is a comprehensive, multi-authored work on the structure and function of the mammalian testis. The approach emphasizes gene expression, translation and production of specific gene products and the cellular and molecular regulation of these fundamental processes. Rather than provide a global survey of all aspects of male reproduction, this book stresses specific mechanisms that underscore the structure and function of the testis. It explains old and new concepts from a cellular and molecular perspective. This novel approach allows the authors to forge links between cell and molecular biology and well-established aspects of spermatogenesis and steroidogenesis. The result is a well-focused, comprehensive, and synthetic analysis of testicular biology.

Industry Reviews

"A comprehensive and current treatise. It is well written, well edited, and of high quality both from a content and physical point of view. This is an excellent book that is likely to become the standard reference in its field. . . . combines a wide range of contemporary knowledge about and approaches to the biology of the testes." --Alvin Tesler, PhD, Doody's Journal "Contains a unique collection of reviews on cell and molecular biology of the testis contributed by leading investigators in diverse aspects of male reproductive biology....Excellent....These authors do a fine job of summarizing a rapidly advancing area of study." --James C. Huston, PhD, The Physiologist
