______: A type of glycosaminoglycan. It cuts a path to the ovum where its head fuses with the oocyte membrane and releases its genetic material to cause fertilization.
_____: Fetal roles incude differentiation of external genital structures and testicular descent.
DHT action must be initiated within Week _____ of gestation.
Defects in _______ typically impair either sperm motility or the ability of the sperm to penetrate the ovum.
______: Involved in suppressing sperm metabolism and activity prior to ejaculation. Allows sperm to survive for a long time in males.
______: Mediated by efferent sympathetic stimulation. Ejection of sperm and semen to exterior or into the female reproductive tract.
