  4. TESTES
  5. EPIDIDYMIS
    • EPIDIDYMIS
    • Function: site of maturation of sperm
    • Characteristics: lumen of ducts are lined by principal cells (pseudo stratified columnar epithelium with stereo-cilia).
    • Location: rests above the testes and is continuous with the vas deferens
  6. PENIS

    • Function: outlet for sperm during copulation and urine, both through a common urethral duct
    • Characteristics: vascular spaces of erectile tissue are lined by endothelium; three cylindrical bodies of erectile muscle: two corpora cavernosa and one corpus cavernosum urethrae (corpus spongiosum)
    • surrounding the urethra

  7. GRAFFIAN FOLLICLE

    • Function: produces precursor of estrogen and houses the oocyte
    • Characteristics: Antrum is filled with antrum fluid and releases the ovum; it later becomes corpus luteum
    • Location: ovary
    • OVIDUCT
    • Function: transport of ovum
    • Characteristics: simple columnar epithelium line the lumen and is made up of two cell types: peg cells (have no cilia but their apex will bulge out above the ciliated cells) and ciliated cells
    • VAGINA
    • Function: conducts menstrual flow from uterus out of the body; serves as birth canal; receptacle for penis
    • Characteristic: composed of non-keratinized stratified squamous epithelium because it is subject to high friction from the latter two functions
