Tissue Summary: testis (TS20-TS28)
During male development, specialised cords develop within the gonadal mesenchyme and surround the germ cells. These primary sex cords are comprised of Sertoli cells surrounded by a layer of peritubular myoid cells. Steroid producing Leydig cells and the vasculature lie within the interstitium (or mesenchymal cells) between the cords.

In Situ Data
Validated Anchor/Marker Genes
Anchor genes are defined as genes whose expression is restricted to one temporospatial anatomical compartment. These have been selected by microarray analyses followed by validation using section in-situ hybridisation.
Currently no defined anchor genes for this component
Marker genes are defined as genes which display a regional or enriched expression pattern and may be useful in identifying one or more particular temporospatial compartment(s). These have been selected by microarray analyses followed by validation using section in-situ hybridisation.
