Precise temporal and tissue‐specific expression of genes during spermatocyte differentiation is crucial for the formation of functional spermatozoa. However, the mechanisms that regulate gene expression during spermatogenesis are poorly understood. One testisspecific gene, Pdha‐2, is beginning to emerge as a potentially important model for the study of these events. This review focuses on our current understanding of the expression and regulation of Pdha‐2 during spermatogenesis. © 1994 Wiley‐Liss, Inc.
