Gonad Somatic Cells (GnR)


Gnd.GnR.SmtcCs
Somatic cells develop into two major cell lineages: the supporting cell lineage (Sertoli cells in testis and granulosa cells in ovaries) and the steroidogenic lineage (Leydig cells in testis and theca cells in ovaries).

Somatic cells developed until week 8 in humans.
