Example text

The cervical epithelium produces glycoprotein-rich cervical mucus, the composition of which varies considerably throughout the menstrual cycle. The differing physical properties of cervical mucus make it easier or more difficult for spermatozoa to penetrate the cervix and find their way into the uterus. Vagina The vagina is a channel for sexual intercourse and serves as the birth canal. It is lined with a stratified squamous epithelium, but the epithelial cells contain deposits of glycogen, which vary in amount throughout the menstrual cycle.

Testosterone is released into the blood and is taken to the Sertoli cells and throughout the body, where it affects a variety of secondary sexual tissues, often after it has been locally converted to dihydrotestosterone. Sertoli cells are stimulated by pituitary FSH via surface FSH receptors and by testosterone from the Leydig cells via cytoplasmic receptors. After FSH stimulation, the Sertoli cells convert some of the testosterone to estrogens (as the granulosa cells in the ovary do). Some of the estrogen diffuses back to the Leydig cells along with a Leydig cell stimulatory factor, which is produced by the Sertoli cells and reaches the Leydig cells by a paracrine (non–blood-borne) mode of secretion (Fig.
