The development of the wolffian/epididymal duct is crucial for proper function and, therefore, male fertility the development of the epididymis is complex the initial stages form as a transient embryonic kidney then the mesonephros is formed, which in turn undergoes extensive morphogenesis under the influence of androgens and growth.
During the development of many internal organs, a single epithelial tubule undergoes repetitive deformation and generates a complex but well-organized pattern, such as tree-like branching or coiling, and it has been shown that tubular patterning processes are remarkably stereotypical and reproducible (joseph et al, 2009 x development and morphogenesis of the wolffian/epididymal duct. Hinton lab august 18, 2015 by our research focuses on the morphogenic events that allow the wolffian (epididymal) duct to elongate and coil without proper.
In vitro experiments utilizing inhibitors of myosin ii results in reduced elongation and coiling, similar to the phenotype of ptk7 knockout this data suggest that ptk7 signaling through myosin ii regulates pcp, which in turn ensures ce-like of cell rearrangements to drive elongation and coiling of the wolffian duct therefore, ptk7 is essential for. The epithelial cells of the epididymal duct absorb water and participate in the uptake and digestion of residual bodies produced during spermiogenesis these cells.
