The process of spermatogenesis, the differentiation of sperm stem cells into spermatozoa, produces a diverse array of descendent cells which express varied morphological and genetic traits throughout their maturation. Beginning with primordial germ cells, these sperm progenitors experience twelve stages of differentiation before maturation into their final stage. During their differentiation, these cells reside in the seminiferous tubules within the testes. These tubules are surrounded by somatic cells, primarily Sertoli, Leydig, myoid, and epithelial cells. These cells provide the germ cells with necessary signaling proteins for their progression as well as protection from exterior toxins through the formation of the blood-testis barrier (BTB). However, their close association with germ cells makes extracting these sperm progenitors difficult. Here, I convey the results for an initial trial of harvesting germ cells from two mice. Due to inconclusive qRT-PCR amplification data from the first experiment, future iterations of this harvest will explore other previously published methods. These will include Magnetic-Activated Cell Sorting which will target individual sperm progenitor populations using cell-surface receptors such as GFRα-1 and THY1 to obtain sperm stem cells. Additionally, Fluorescence-Activated Cell Sorting may be useful for obtaining multiple groups of meiotic cell types from a heterogenous cell suspension harvested from the seminiferous tubules through the use of Hoechst 33342 staining. Finally, extraction of spermatozoa from the Cauda Epididymis, a storage site for these mature sperm, can be performed either in conjunction with testes collection during necropsy or as an in vivo technique intended for serial sampling of sperm cells over time. Regardless, it is necessary for these methods to produce populations from spermatogonia to spermatozoa with high purity in order to produce representative qRT-PCR results downstream, indicating either presence or lack of genetic mutation enacted by future CRISPR-Cas9 experiments.
