Androgen binding protein
This product of the sertoli cells sequesters large concentrations of testosterone within the seminiferous tubule
This product of the Sertoli cells inhibits production of FSH in the pituitary
This hypothalamic hormone stimulates the production of FSH and LH
This testicular product negatively feeds back to inhibit LH and GnRH production
This enzyme converts both DHEA and androstenedione into testosterone
This enzyme peripherally converts testosterone to dihydrotestosterone
