Regulation of spermatogenesis by FSH

In men, FSH is synthesized in the pituitary gland and acts on the testes to stimulate sperm production. Specifically, FSH acts on the Sertoli cells, which support the spermatogonia (germ stem cells).

On the other hand, the hormone inhibin regulates FSH synthesis inversely, i.e. it blocks it from acting.
