The tubuli seminiferi recti (also known as the tubuli recti, tubulus rectus, or straight seminiferous tubules) is a structure in the
testicleconnecting the convoluted region of the seminiferous tubuleto the rete testis, although the tubuli recti has a different appearance distinguishing it from these two structures.
They enter the fibrous tissue of the
mediastinum, and pass upward and backward, forming, in their ascent, a close net-work of anastomosingtubes which are merely channels in the fibrous stroma, lined by flattened epithelium, and having no proper walls; this constitutes the rete testis.
