Introduction The tight junction (TJ) complex acts as a selectively permeable intercellular occlusion barrier in vertebrate epithelia and contributes to the regulated paracellular movement of solutes between fluid compartments ( Farquhar

, neighboring Sertoli cells closely associate with each other to form the blood–testis barrier (BTB) that is constituted by inter-Sertoli tight junctions (TJ) and basal ectoplasmic specializations (ES, an atypical adherens junction (AJ) type). The BTB is
