In testis, which of the following cells are not found in the interstitial spaces between the seminiferous tubules?

(A) Sertoli cells

(B) Leydig’s cells

(C) Germinal cells

(D) Both (A) and (C)

The Correct Answer is (D) Both (A) and (C)

Solution

Sertoli and germinal cells are not found in the interstitial spaces between the seminiferous tubules, whereas Leydig cells are found in the interstitial spaces between the seminiferous tubules.

Sertoli cells and germinal cells are present in the seminiferous tubules of the male gonads. These cells are the supporting epithelial cells of the seminiferous tubules.

Leydig cells, also called Interstitial cells, are found in the interstitial spaces between the seminiferous tubules. These cells are mainly involved in synthesising a group of testicular hormones known as androgens. These androgens hormones are responsible for the secondary sexual growth of males and the growth and production of sperms.
