Glands situated on each side of the prostate that secrete a fluid component of the seminal fluid into the urethra.
The male reproductive organs. They are divided into the external organs (PENIS; SCROTUM;and URETHRA) and the internal organs (TESTIS; EPIDIDYMIS; VAS DEFERENS; SEMINAL VESICLES; EJACULATORY DUCTS; PROSTATE; and BULBOURETHRAL GLANDS).
A saclike, glandular diverticulum on each ductus deferens in male vertebrates. It is united with the excretory duct and serves for temporary storage of semen. (From McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)
The external reproductive organ of males. It is composed of a mass of erectile tissue enclosed in three cylindrical fibrous compartments. Two of the three compartments, the corpus cavernosa, are placed side-by-side along the upper part of the organ. The third compartment below, the corpus spongiosum, houses the urethra.
The excretory duct of the testes that carries SPERMATOZOA. It rises from the SCROTUM and joins the SEMINAL VESICLES to form the ejaculatory duct.
Pathological processes involving the male reproductive tract (GENITALIA, MALE).
The convoluted cordlike structure attached to the posterior of the TESTIS. Epididymis consists of the head (caput), the body (corpus), and the tail (cauda). A network of ducts leaving the testis joins into a common epididymal tubule proper which provides the transport, storage, and maturation of SPERMATOZOA.
A gland in males that surrounds the neck of the URINARY BLADDER and the URETHRA. It secretes a substance that liquefies coagulated semen. It is situated in the pelvic cavity behind the lower part of the PUBIC SYMPHYSIS, above the deep layer of the triangular ligament, and rests upon the RECTUM.

Roles for Nkx3.1 in prostate development and cancer. (1/34)

In aging men, the prostate gland becomes hyperproliferative and displays a propensity toward carcinoma. Although this hyperproliferative process has been proposed to represent an inappropriate reactivation of an embryonic differentiation program, the regulatory genes responsible for normal prostate development and function are largely undefined. Here we show that the murine Nkx3.1 homeobox gene is the earliest known marker of prostate epithelium during embryogenesis and is subsequently expressed at all stages of prostate differentiation in vivo as well as in tissue recombinants. A null mutation for Nkx3.1 obtained by targeted gene disruption results in defects in prostate ductal morphogenesis and secretory protein production. Notably, Nkx3.1 mutant mice display prostatic epithelial hyperplasia and dysplasia that increases in severity with age. This epithelial hyperplasia and dysplasia also occurs in heterozygous mice, indicating haploinsufficiency for this phenotype. Because human NKX3.1 is known to map to a prostate cancer hot spot, we propose that NKX3.1 is a prostate-specific tumor suppressor gene and that loss of a single allele may predispose to prostate carcinogenesis. The Nkx3.1 mutant mice provide a unique animal model for examining the relationship between normal prostate differentiation and early stages of prostate carcinogenesis.  (+info)

Metabolism of oestrone and oestradiol-17beta to conjugated steroids by the accessory sex glands of the male pig. (2/34)

Oestrogens are secreted in large amounts by boar testes and are known to have a synergistic effect with testosterone on the production of large volumes of seminal plasma. Thus, oestrogens play a role in regulating the large accessory sex glands in the boar. Since testosterone metabolites (e.g. 5alpha-dihydrotestosterone) account for much of its action in target tissues we have looked at the metabolism of oestrogens in the accessory sex glands of the male pig. Tissues from seminal vesicles and bulbourethral glands of 6-week-old castrate and intact males, and 12-week-old castrate animals, were incubated with (3)H-labelled oestrone and oestradiol-17beta. Aliquots of spent culture medium and of methanolic tissue extracts were taken to measure radioactivity, prior to separation of unconjugated and conjugated steroids on Waters C(18) Sep-Pak cartridges. About one-third of the radioactivity appeared as conjugates in the media from both glands with each oestrogen. Subsequently, sulphoconjugated steroids and glucuronidates were recovered in series from C(18) cartridges after solvolysis and enzyme hydrolysis respectively. Furthermore, about one-third of the conjugated fraction in each case remained unhydrolysed after these treatments. In conclusion, it is clear that a study of the actions of oestrogens on these glands must consider the dynamics of metabolism of the oestrogens presented to them by the testes and would include conjugation of steroids by the glands themselves.  (+info)

Social effects and boar taint: significance for production of slaughter boars (Sus scrofa). (3/34)

A study was conducted to elucidate the effects of social factors on the concentrations of boar taint substances, androstenone and skatole, in boars. The factors included dominance (social rank) and the effects of strongly tainted animals on other members of the group. Four successive replicates of 100 pigs (50 boars + 50 gilts) with an average live weight of 24 kg were randomly allocated to 10 pens of 10. Data for this study were collected during the period of 67 to 114 kg of live weight and included the repetitive recording of agonistic behavior during competitive feeding; blood sampling for determination of plasma androstenone, skatole and testosterone in boars; feces sampling for determination of skatole content; and collection of bulbourethral glands in boars, and uteri plus ovaries in gilts at slaughter, for the assessment of sexual maturity. Results show an influence of social rank on plasma concentrations of androstenone (P = .0001) and testosterone (P = .0001), the weight of the bulbourethral glands (P = .0001), and plasma skatole (P = .02). Pens were classified according to the pig with the highest concentration of androstenone in the pen into high, medium, and low maximum pens. In pens with high maximum concentrations of androstenone, the second-highest androstenone concentration (P = .0001), and the average concentration (P = .0003) in the pen were higher than those in pens with medium or low maximum concentrations of androstenone. Mean aggression level was also higher (P = .02), but pens with high maximum aggression level did not have higher mean androstenone concentration. Rank effect on androstenone was more important than aggression effect. Neither maximum androstenone concentration nor maximum aggression level in a pen was related to the pen mean stage of sexual maturity in either sex. No influences of rank, aggression, or aggression received were found on the feces skatole level, and no pheromonal communicative function was demonstrated for skatole. High androstenone concentrations did not have a suppressive effect on androstenone concentrations in other males of the group; on the contrary, the levels were increased. This may be due to a stimulating effect of androstenone and, possibly, mating activity. Consequently, in the production of boars for slaughter, strongly tainted animals should be avoided or removed and mating activity minimized. This could be facilitated by, for instance, slaughtering before sexual maturity or separate rearing of the sexes.  (+info)

Expression of the lipocalin-type prostaglandin D synthase gene in the reproductive tracts of Holstein bulls. (4/34)

The aim of this study was to localize expression of the prostaglandin D synthase gene in the reproductive tracts of Holstein bulls using northern blotting and in situ hybridization. For northern blotting, a digoxigenin-labelled prostaglandin D synthase cDNA probe was used to probe blots containing RNA isolated from the testes, epididymides, vas deferens, ampullae, seminal vesicles, prostate and bulbourethral glands of bulls. The digoxigenin-labelled cDNA for the bovine homologue of prostaglandin D synthase hybridized to a single band (approximately 0.9 kb) to RNA samples from the caput, corpus and cauda epididymides, as well as RNA samples from the vas deferens and the ampulla. The probe also detected a single band in testis samples, although the transcript size was slightly larger (approximately 1.0 kb) than the transcript found in the other tissues. The highest expression of prostaglandin D synthase was observed in the testes and caput epididymides. Prostaglandin D synthase transcripts were not found in the seminal vesicles or the prostate or bulbourethral glands using northern blotting. For in situ hybridization, antisense and sense riboprobes were synthesized and used to hybridize to cryosections obtained from the reproductive tissues of bulls. In situ hybridization of bull testes showed that prostaglandin D synthase transcripts were present within the germ cells in the adluminal compartment of the seminiferous tubules containing round and elongated spermatids, indicating that expression varied with stage of development of the seminiferous tubules. Prostaglandin D synthase expression was observed in the epithelial cells of the epididymides with greatest expression occurring in the caput epididymidis. Some expression was also observed in the epithelial cells of the vas deferens and a few cells of some lobules in the prostate and bulbourethral glands. Expression of the prostaglandin D synthase gene was not detected in ampullae or seminal vesicles by in situ hybridization.  (+info)

Vaccination of boars with a GnRH vaccine (Improvac) eliminates boar taint and increases growth performance. (5/34)

Peri- and postpubertal boars accumulate substances (e.g., androstenone and skatole) in their fatty tissue that are responsible for boar taint in pork. The objective of this study was to assess the efficacy of a GnRH vaccine, Improvac, in eliminating boar taint. Three hundred male (200 intact boars, 100 barrows) crossbred (Large White x Landrace) pigs were used in a 2 x 3 factorially arranged experiment. The respective factors were sex group (barrows, boars treated with placebo, or boars treated with Improvac) and slaughter age (23 or 26 wk). Vaccines were administered 8 and 4 wk before slaughter. All Improvac-treated pigs exhibited anti-GnRH titers. Testes and bulbo-urethral gland weights in treated pigs were reduced by approximately 50% (P < 0.001) and serum testosterone levels were below 2 ng/mL in the majority of treated boars (94 and 92% across both age groups at 2 and 4 wk, respectively). Boar taint, as assessed by the concentration of androstenone and skatole in s.c. fat, was suppressed to low or undetectable levels in 100% of Improvac-treated boars. No Improvac-treated pigs had significant concentrations of either androstenone (> 1.0 microg/g) or skatole (> 0.20 microg/g). In contrast, 49.5% of placebo-treated controls had significant androstenone and 10.8% had significant skatole levels, resulting in 10% of the control boars with high concentrations of both compounds. The mean concentrations of taint compounds in the Improvac-treated pigs were not significantly different from those in barrows. Improvac-treated boars grew more rapidly (P = 0.051 and < 0.001 for pigs slaughtered at 23 and 26 wk of age, respectively) than control boars over the 4 wk after the secondary vaccination, possibly because of reduced sexual and aggressive activities. Compared with barrows, Improvac-treated boars were leaner and had superior feed conversion efficiency. The vaccine was well tolerated by the pigs, and no observable site reactions could be detected at the time of slaughter. Vaccination of boars with Improvac allows production of heavy boars with improved meat quality through prevention and control of boar taint.  (+info)

Transforming growth factor-beta 2 heterozygous mutant mice exhibit Cowper's gland hyperplasia and cystic dilations of the gland ducts (Cowper's syringoceles). (7/34)

Analyses of mutant mice with a deletion for the transforming growth factor beta 2 (Tgfbeta2) gene revealed cysts in the perineal/scrotal region of male mice. We present evidence from in situ, light and electron microscopy that the cysts observed in Tgfbeta2+/- heterozygous mice males derive from Cowper's gland tissue. The Cowper's glands of Tgfbeta2+/- heterozygous mutant mice display all steps of glandular hyperplasia and cystic dilation. TGF-beta isoforms and TGF-beta receptor (TbetaR-II) were localized immunocytochemically in sections of Cowper's glands. TGF-beta2 and TGF-beta3 were located predominantly in myoepithelial cells of the Cowper's gland whereas the TbetaRII was found in the plasma membrane of the acinar cells. TUNEL-assays revealed that apoptotic cell death is significantly reduced in Cowper's glands of TgfbetaB2+/- heterozygous mutant mice. The fact that Tgfbeta2+/- heterozygous mutant mice exhibit hyperplasia of Cowper's gland epithelium and Cowper's gland cysts suggests a disturbance of epithelial-stromal interaction most likely due to reduced TGF-beta2 level, accompanied by a significant decrease in apoptosis.  (+info)

Structure of the pelvic and penile urethra--relationship with the ducts of the sex accessory glands of the Mongolian gerbil (Meriones unguiculatus). (8/34)

The urethra is the main place of entry for sexually transmitted pathogens. However, there is little literature on the morphology of the urogenital system, principally the urethra and ducts of the sex accessory glands. The Mongolian gerbil is an insectivorous, herbivorous and monogamous rodent with nocturnal habits; it has been used successfully as a laboratory animal since the 1960s. Therefore, the objective of the present paper was to describe the structure and ultrastructure of the urethra and its relations to the ducts of the accessory sex glands of the Mongolian gerbil (Meriones unguiculatus), contributing to the understanding of the reproductive biology of the rodent and aiming to provide data for future experimental studies. Conventional techniques of light and scanning electron microscopy were utilized. The urethra and ducts of the accessory sex glands are similar to those of the albino rat and the mouse. However, there is variation in drainage type among accessory sex glands for the inner urethra. The ducts of the seminal vesicle, the ductus deferens, drain their contents independently into the ampullary duct that opens in the urethra. The ducts of the prostate, coagulating and bulbourethral glands drain their contents independently into the urethra.  (+info)

The effect of surgical castration of adult male Sprague-Dawley rats on peripheral and central benzodiazepine (BZ) receptors was studied. Following removal of the testes, a significant decrease in the density of peripheral BZ receptors (PBR) was observed in Cowpers glands (71%; P less than 0.005) and the adrenal (31%; P less than 0.01), but not in the heart. Administration of testosterone acetate (TA) prevented castration-induced PBR depletion. Orchiectomy per se, as well as TA administration to castrated rats, had no effect on central or peripheral BZ receptors in whole brain without the cerebellum. These results indicate the regulatory role of testosterone in the regulation of PBR in Cowpers glands and adrenal.

In the process we will consider aspects of the male and female reproductive systems, pregnancy, development, aging, and death. THE PHYSICAL EXAMINATION AND THE REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM The male reproductive system includes the gonads (testes), a series of specialized ducts (the epididymis, ductus deferens, ejaculatory duct, and urethra), accessory glands (the seminal vesicles, prostate, and bulbourethral glands), and the external genitalia (penis and scrotum). The female reproductive system includes the gonads (ovaries), derivatives of an embryonic system of ducts (the uterine tubes, uterus, and vagina), accessory glands (the greater and lesser vestibular glands), the external genitalia (the clitoris, labia majora and labia minora), and secondary sexual organs, the mammary glands of the ...
© Cambridge University Press 2013. Objectives: The purpose of the male reproductive system is to (i) produce, maintain and transport sperm and seminal plasma; (ii) discharge sperm within the female reproductive tract; and (iii) produce and secrete androgens for maintaining male reproductive capacity. The objective of this chapter is to briefly review the key components of the male reproductive system and explore their basic structure and functional role. Hormonal regulation and the process of spermatogenesis will also be examined. Structure and function of the male reproductive system. Reproduction is the process by which organisms create offspring. While both the female and male reproductive systems are involved in producing, nourishing and transporting either the egg or sperm, these systems are very different in shape and structure. The male reproductive organs include the testis, epididymis, vas deferens, accessory glands such as the seminal vesicles, prostate and bulbourethral glands, and the
When a boy first starts producing semen, the hormone levels are not stable and the various parts needed to both produce semen and to cause an ejaculation do not necessarily operate in a steady fashion. You did not mention how long it has been since your ejaculation, but once a somewhat steady rate is established the average male has a nocturnal emission (wet dream) once or twice a month. See How many times a week is having a wet dream unusual? for a more detailed discussion. I suspect that the drops at the end of your penis that you are seeing at night are not semen, but pre-ejaculate fluid (also called pre-cum in slang). This fluid is clear and slick feeling as compared to semen which is milky white or slightly yellowish in color and sticky. The pre-ejaculate is produced by your Cowpers glands to clear out the tube in your penis in preparation for ejaculation. It also provides a small amount of lubrication for the end of the penis.

In the testis, sperm form in the seminiferous tubules, but are stored in the epididymis where they mature. They move through the vas deferens and mix with secretions from the seminal vesicle and bulbourethral gland to form the semen. They enter the urethra at the base of the penis.

Spongy urethra (orpenile urethra):Runs along the length of the penis on its ventral (underneath) surface. It is about 15-16 cm in length, and travels through the corpus spongiosum. The ducts from the urethral gland (gland of Littre) enter here. The openings of the bulbourethral glands are also found here. Some textbooks will subdivide the spongy urethra into two parts, the bulbous and pendulous urethra. The urethral lumen runs effectively parallel to the penis, except at the narrowest point, the external urethral meatus, where it is vertical. This produces a spiral stream of urine and has the effect of cleaning the external urethral meatus. The lack of an equivalent mechanism in the female urethra partly explains why urinary tract infections occur so much more frequently in females ...

Purpose Type 3 muscarinic receptors, which are present in the bladder wall, are important for bladder function. However, their role in the context of the urothelium is not well defined. Understanding the role of type 3 muscarinic receptors has been limited by the lack of specific type 3 muscarinic receptor antibodies. Thus, we identified a specific type 3 muscarinic receptor antibody and investigated the site of type 3 muscarinic receptors in sham operated and obstructed guinea pig bladders. Materials and Methods The specificity of 4 commercially available type 3 muscarinic receptor antibodies was determined. Immunohistochemistry was then done in bladder tissue from sham operated and obstructed guinea pig bladders. Results One of the 4 antibodies examined had the needed specificity in terms of blocking peptide and Western blot characterization. Using this antibody type 3 muscarinic receptor immunoreactivity was associated with muscle cells, nerves and interstitial cells. Four types of ...

Androgens are central to sexual differentiation and the maintenance of male secondary sexual characteristics and functions. Individuals with inactivating mutations of their androgen receptor (AR) (androgen insensitivity syndromes (AIS)) are phenotypically female in appearance and behavior and lack male sex accessory organs (prostate, seminal vesicles and Cowpers glands) despite the presence of testes, high levels of testosterone and a Y chromosome [1]. The effects of androgens are cell-specific and developmental stage-specific. For instance, castration of an adult male does not change the external genitalia or voice pitch, but causes a profound involution of the prostate, particularly in the epithelial compartment [2,3]. The exquisite sensitivity of prostatic epithelial cells to androgens has been exploited therapeutically in the management of prostate cancer [4].. The mechanisms underlying the temporal and tissue-specific effects of androgens are not understood. Like all steroid hormones, ...
Ejaculating semen requires several independent systems inside your body to both mature and work together. For boys, most often the systems come together in stage 4 and that is when ejaculation starts. However, for some boys the systems come together sooner, in stage 2. I suspect it is about half and half, but I havent found any studies yet to verify this. My guess is based on knowing that girls have a similar event -- monthly blood flows -- which can start either in stage 2 or stage 4 and it is about half and half for them. I assume it is similar in boys with ejaculating semen.. Thus you are in the group that starts in stage 2 and your friend is in the group that starts in stage 4. The clear fluid that is coming from your friends penis is pre-ejaculate fluid (commonly called pre-cum in slang). It is produced by the Cowpers glands to clear out your penis prior to ejaculation. It is also a lubricating fluid for sexual intercourse. You will eventually produce this fluid as well, but I suspect ...

Methods: A total of 113 patients undergoing primary isolated coronary artery bypass were randomly assigned to normothermic (37°C) or hypothermic (26°C) systemic perfusion. The clinical course of the patients was prospectively recorded, and several inflammatory and fibrinolytic markers (C-reactive protein, fibrinogen, interleukin 6, plasminogen activator inhibitor ...

These folds begin in a region which is 0.7 mm. distal or caudal to the entrance of the mesonephric ducts into the urogenital sinus, and spread out radially. Of these folds, the upper lateral folds are the most prominent. When the model is viewed from above, it may be seen that they enclose a relatively deep fossa before blending in the sagittal plane to form the uppermost portion of the urethral plate. The middle lateral folds, shorter than the upper ones, run nearly parallel to them, and are separated from the upper folds by relatively deep, narrow grooves. In their proximal portion, each middle fold presents an elevation of about 75 u; distally or caudally, each middle fold slopes downward, becoming broader and lower, and is ultimately lost in the urethral plate. The lower lateral folds taken together ...
William Cowpers life was wrought with sadness and depression. But he still produced glorious hymns that resound loudly in our churches today.

He whistles as he goes, light-hearted wretch, Cold and yet cheerful : messenger of grief Perhaps to thousands, and of joy to some, To him indifferent- whether grief or joy.

Male Accessory Gland Infection (MAGI), also known as Male Accessory Gland Inflammation, is a condition with signs of inflammation involving one or more sites in the male genital tract. Diagnosis is made according to parameters defined by the World Health Organisation, and it is particularly made in relation to infectious or inflammatory causes of male infertility. Although it is usually caused by infection spreading from the urethra, non-infectious causes also exist. MAGI includes infections (bacterial, viral, fungal etc.) involving one or more of the following male genital organs or tracts: seminal vesicles (seminal vesiculitis) prostate gland (prostatitis) vas deferens epididymis (epididymitis) testicles (orchitis) urethra (urethritis) Cowpers glands As infection has a negative impact on the secretory function of the accessory glands, findings that could indicate the presence of MAGI include: signs of inflammation in a semen analysis (leukocytes ≥ 1x106/mL and/or elastase ≥ 230 ng/mL) low ...

5α-androstenone is a very lipophilic molecule. The water solubility of 5α-androstenone is only 230 μg/l at 25°C [18]. The steroid appears to be easily transferred from plasma to adipose tissue. It has been found that if the level of 5α-androstenone in peripheral plasma exceeds about 15 ng/ml, a heavy accumulation of androstenone in fat usually follows [19]. Sinclair et al [20] reported that peripheral plasma levels of androstenone below 15 ng/ml were associated with low androstenone concentrations in fat, while a wide range of androstenone concentrations can be found in fat in animals with plasma levels above this value.. The levels of androstenone in adipose tissue can be doubled within a day following stimulation of androstenone production by the testes by hCG injection [21]. However, when the concentration of androstenone in peripheral plasma decreases from high levels, the concentration in adipose tissue do also gradually decrease. Thus there appear to be a dynamic relationship between ...
The male pig is given two doses of the vaccine: the first dose primes the immune system but has little effect on the physiology of the pig; the second dose causes a significant and transitory antibody response, inducing the reduction of the concentration of the boar taint compounds and suppressing the boar-like undesirable behaviours. Improvac® was demonstrated to be at least as efficacious as physical castration in reducing boar taint, including on large commercial scale production units ...

Boar taint is an offensive odour, which affects the smell and taste of cooked pork, resulting mainly from the accumulation of skatole and androstenone in the back fat of intact males, explain A.B. Strathe of the University of Copenhagen and colleagues there and at the Danish Agriculture & Food Councils Pig Research Centre.. The aim of their study published in Journal of Animal Science was to estimate genetic parameters for skatole and androstenone and their genetic relationship to production and litter size traits. Concentrations of skatole and androstenone in the back fat were available for approximately 6,000 and 1,000 Landrace boars, respectively. The concentrations were log-transformed to align phenotypic measures to a normal distribution. Heritability estimates for Log(skatole) and Log(androstenone) were 0.33 and 0.59, respectively. The genetic correlation between the two measures of boar taint was 0.37, suggesting that genetic selection against boar taint based on only one of the chemical ...
Like many methods of birth control, reliable effect is achieved only by correct and consistent use. Observed failure rates of withdrawal vary depending on the population being studied: studies have found actual failure rates of 15-28% per year.[7] In comparison, the pill has an actual use failure rate of 2-8%,[8] while the intrauterine device (IUD) has an actual use failure rate of 0.8%.[9] The condom has an actual use failure rate of 10-18%.[7] However, some authors suggest that actual effectiveness of withdrawal could be similar to effectiveness of condoms, and this area needs further research.[10] (See Comparison of birth control methods.). For couples that use coitus interruptus correctly at every act of intercourse, the failure rate is 4% per year. In comparison, the pill has a perfect-use failure rate of 0.3%, the I.U.D. a rate of 0.6%, and the condom a rate of 2%.[9]. It has been suggested that the pre-ejaculate (Cowpers fluid) emitted by the penis prior to ejaculation normally ...
