This section needs expansion. Theca cells that sit outside the follicle granulosa cells Secrete androstenedione that can be converted by the follicle cells into estrogens. The testis cords orange containing the Sertoli cells and the germ cells which are arrested as T1 prospermatogonia until after birth later differentiate into seminiferous tubules which become hollow and actively produce spermatazoa during puberty.
Primordial germ cells: the first cell lineage or the last cells standing? Anatomically beginning at the lower part of the tail of the epididymis it is at first very tortuous, but gradually becoming less twisted it ascends along the posterior border of the testis and medial side of the epididymis, and, as a constituent of the spermatic cord, traverses the inguinal canal to the abdominal inguinal ring.
Surrounding the gonad, the basement membrane layer underlying the coelomic epithelium thickens to form the tunica albuginea.
