Tight junctions prevent the paracellular flow and maintain cell polarity in an epithelium. These are also essential for maintaining the blood-testis-barrier involved in regulating sperm differentiation. Septate junctions are orthologous to the tight junctions in insects. In Drosophila testis, major septate junction components co-localize at the interface of germline and... Show more
