Blood-testis barrier



The blood-testis barrier (abbreviated as BTB) is a barrier between the blood vessels and the seminiferous tubules of the animal testicle|testes. The blood-testis barrier is formed in part by Sertoli cells, which are sustentacular cells (supporting cells) of the seminiferous tubules. The barrier avoids passage of cytotoxicity|cytotoxic agents (bodies or substances that are toxicity|toxic to cell (biology)|cells).
