Abstract

The aim of this study is to examine the influence of Sertoli cells on LH binding to Leydig cells in culture in immature mice. Leydig cells and Sertoli cells were obtained from the testes of immature C57BL/6Ncrj mice and were cultured in serum-free medium for 7 days. The LH binding to Leydig cells and the FSH binding to Sertoli cells were dependent on incubation time, the number of cells, and the amount of labelled hormone added. The dissociation constant for LH binding to Leydig cells was 7.3 x 10-10 M. Co-culture of Leydig cells with Sertoli cells for 7 days decreased LH binding to Leydig cells. The binding was 34.9% of that to Leydig cells cultured alone. After cultivation of Leydig cells with spent Sertoli cell-cultured medium (SM) for the last 4 days of the 7-day culture period, LH binding to Leydig cells decreased to as low as 17.4% of that of the controls. For the controls, LH binding was measured in Leydig cells cultured in spent Leydig cell-cultured medium (LM). There was no difference between SM- and LM-cultures in the final survival rate or the percentage of cells showing histochemically demonstrated 3β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase activity. These data suggest that some factor or factors are secreted from the cultured Sertoli cells and inhibit the binding of LH to Leydig cells in culture.
