Abstract:Spermatogonial stem cells (SSCs) are the foundation of spermatogenesis, a group of cells which live in a specialized niche and have multiple differentiation potentiality. Recently, α6- and β-integrin, CD9, GFRA1 and other main molecular makers are regarded as the specific markers of SSCs, as well as the discovery of a variety of cytokines and genes, such as GDNF, PLZF, ubiquitin, LIF, which determine the self-renewal and differentiation of SSCs. New achievements have been reached on SSCs separation, identification and biological characteristics. This paper reviews the main molecular makers and regulatory mechanism of self-renewal and differentiation of SSCs at present, and provides further guidance for future studies of other stem cells.
