Abstract

This study reports the gene expression and immunolocalization of the low-affinity neurotrophin receptor, p75, in accessory glands (prostate and bulbourethral glands) and epididymis (caput and cauda) of male rabbits during sexual maturation. We showed that p75 was expressed in all tissues studied with similar mRNA levels during this period. However, it was differentially immunolocalized in bulbourethral glands and stereocilia of epididymis. These findings may be related with some remodeling processes in the accessory glands during sexual maturation, which could be associated with sperm maturation. The interaction of p75 with neurotrophins in rabbit male reproductive tract suggests the possible implication of this system in sexual maturation in rabbits.
