The Testis

  • Daniel D. Federman


This chapter on the testis uses the same headings as last year’s. The citations should stand on their own, but reference to last year’s volume may occasionally be useful. A new section on the H-Y antigen is included at the end.


Cortisol Progesterone Aldosterone Infertility Corticosterone 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
