    3. FSH
    4. LH
    5. Testosterone
    1. Cell: Leydig cells Hormone: inhibin B
    2. Cell: sertoli cells Function: spermatogenesis
    3. Cell: Leydig cell Hormone: testosterone
    4. Cell: sertoli cells Hormone: FSH
    5. Cell: Leydig cells Hormone: LH
    1. Testosterone moves through an active channel to cross the blood testicular barrier
    2. Intra-testicular concentration of testosterone is 50 times the peripheral concentration
    3. Testosterone is produced by Leydig cells under the control of LH
    4. Testosterone can be kept inside sertoli cell by binding to ABP
    5. Testosterone can be converted by 5 alpha reductase into DHT
    1. The amount of testosterone and sperm produced by the testes is dependent on the influence of FSH alone
    2. Blocking of 5-alpha-reductase enzyme is used to treat some diseases where DHT can cause or potentiate the disease
    3. FSH control the spermatogenesis process by Sertoli cells
    4. Testosterone will be kept inside sertoli cells and affect the maturation process of spermatogenesis
