To investigate the biology of the male genital duct epithelium, we have established cell cultures from the ovine vas deferens and epididymis epithelium. These cells develop tight junctions, high transepithelial electrical resistance, and a lumen-negative transepithelial potential difference as a sign of active transepithelial ion transport. In epididymis cultures the equivalent short-circuit current (I(sc)) averaged 20.8+/-0.7 microA/cm(2) (n = 150) and was partially inhibited by apical appli...Expand abstract
