Production of Androgen-Binding Protein (ABP) concentrates  androgens for spermatids 3. Promotes sperm production (spermatogenesis) by raising  testosterone levels in tubules  ii. Spermatogenesis is regulated by: GnRH, FSH, and inhibin iii. Inhibin 1. negative feedback to the pituitary and hypothalamus iv. LH - targets Interstitial cells 1. Increases secretion of testosterone and other androgens  Females i. FSH – growth and development of follices ii. LH – maintenance of corpus luteum and secretion of progesterone  2.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
