The rete testis is located within the mediastinum testis and gives rise to several ducts that join a tube called the epididymis. The epididymis is coiled around the outer surface of the testis. The seminiferous tubules are lined with a specialized stratified tissue, called germinal epithelium, which functions to produce the male sex cells.
