Seminal Vesicle

The seminal vesicle is a small gland in the shape of a coiled tube with a muscular wall.  Its secretory epithelium produces the bulk of the fluid which comprises the human ejaculate.  

The highly folded mucosa of the seminal vesicle is lined by a columnar epithelium similar to that of the vas deferens.  The duct of the seminal vesicle empties into the ejaculatory duct.
