11. Two tissue layers, or tunics, cover the testes. The outer is tunica vaginalis and inner is tunica albuginea. The later partitions the testis into 100 to 200 wedge-shaped testicular lobules. Each lobule of the testis contains 2 to 4 tightly convoluted seminiferous tubules which produce sperms. Between the contorted seminiferous tubules are specialized endocrine cells called interstitial cells. Once the sperms are produced in the contorted seminiferous tubules, they move through the contorted seminiferous tubules and enter a series of very short ducts called straight seminiferous tubules. The straight tubules lead to the rete testis. The sperms are transported out of the testis and into the epididymis through a series of efferent ductules.

12. The process by which a testis descends is not well understood, but it seems to be associated with the shortening and differential growth of the gubernaculum, which is attached to the testis and extends through the inguinal canal to the wall of the scrotum. As the testis descends about week 28, it passes to the side of the urinary bladder and anterior to the pubic symphysis. It carries with it the ductus deferens, the testicular vessels and nerve, a portion of the internal abdominal oblique muscle, and lymph vessels. All of these structures remain attached to the testis and form what is known as the spermatic cord. By the time the testis has taken its position in the scrotal sac, the gubernaculum is no more than a remnant of scar-like tissue.
