Where are sperm made? Where is testosterone made? Where is the seminal fluid made? 2. What happens to the testes during development, usually a month or two before the baby boy is born? Why is this important, and what would happen if this didn’t occur? 3. Understand parts of the seminiferous tubule: wall of the tubule, lumen, cells along the way to becoming sperm, Sertoli cells. Understand the process of sperm production (spermatogenesis): When does it occur? Where do the following cells fit in: spermatid, secondary spermatocyte, primary spermatocyte, sperm, spermatogonium (stem cell)? What do Sertoli cells do? Also, know interstitial cells: specific location, function. 4. Know the parts of the sperm cell and their functions: head, tail, midpiece, acrosome (acrosomal cap). 5. What are the functions of testosterone? What type of macromolecule is testosterone (protein, lipid, carbohydrate, or nucleic acid)? (From lecture and text): What are the male secondary sex characteristics? What are anabolic steroids, how do they work to bulk up muscle cells, and what are the side effects associated with their use? 6.
