1 Biology 595EN Endocrinology October 28, 2003 Male Reproductive Endocrinology Kenneth L. Campbell Professor of Biology University of Massachusetts at Boston

2 This presentation is made possible by a grant entitled “Shortcourses in Endocrinology at Minority Undergraduate Institutions” from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) to The Minority Affairs Committee of the Endocrine Society

3 What are endocrine systems for? Endocrine Functions Maintain Internal Homeostasis Support Cell Growth Coordinate Development Coordinate Reproduction Facilitate Responses to External Stimuli

4 What are feedback systems? Feedbacks Generate Control Loops Negative These maintain hormonal balance & are often linked to homeostatic processes. If the multiplicative effect of the several links in a control loop is negative, the entire control loop is negative. Positive These cause physiologic changes in the system involved. If the multiplicative effect of the several links in a control loop is positive, the entire control loop is positive. --+ ++

5 How dynamic are these systems? Hormone, receptor, transducer & effector levels vary with time. Some change over short terms, others over long terms. Levels also vary with developmental stage, gender, & health status. www.antiaging.com/images/ testosterone_decline.gif After a248.e.akamai.net/.../pubs/mmanual_home/ illus/i232_1.gif

7 Adult Male Anatomy

8 Male Embryogenesis

11 Sex Determination: Genetic

12 Sex Determination: Gonadal www.med.unc.edu/embryo_images/un it-genital/genital_gifs/genital010-1.gif

13 Sex Determination: Internal Reproductive Tract

14 Sex Determination: External Reproductive Tract

15 Pituitary- Hypothalamic Associations www.cushings-help.com/ anterior-pituitary.gif

18 Inhibin europe.obgyn.net/nederland/mp/o vergang/images/overgang14x.gif Female Males lack inhibin A. Inhibin B is inversely correlated with FSH & spermatogenesis in normal adults.

20 Maturation: Hormonal

24 Testicular Anatomy trc.ucdavis.edu/mjguinan/apc100 /modules/Reproductive/mammal/ images/testis10.jpg

25 Meiosis: Males & Females MaleFemale

26 Spermatogenesis

27 Sperm Maturation Spermatozoa reach final shape in the testis, but they gain functional maturity while passing through the epididymus & female reproductive tract: activation of full motility, capacitation, in the vagina & cervix; final fertilizing ability after the acrosome reaction, usually near the egg.

28 Fertilization

29 Male Contraception Barriers condoms Vasectomy Hormones peripheral androgens +/- LHRH antagonists or agonists

30 Male Serum Hormone Age Profiles www.dpcweb.com/documents/news&views/spring_02/the_aging_male.html Male Aging & Reproductive Senescence

31 www.dpcweb.com/documents/news&views/spring_02/the_aging_male.html The ratio T/SHBG is the FAI, a Measure of free T. Adrenal androgens like DHEAS also decline with age.

32 Low Fertility in Gainj vs Other Groups

33 How is prolactin controlled?
