Aromatization of androgens is a key step in estrogen production, and it regulates the delicate balance between estrogens and androgens in the gonads and sex steroid target tissues. In the present study, we generated transgenic mice (AROM(+)) bearing the human ubiquitin C promoter/human P450 aromatase fusion gene. AROM(+) male mice are characterized by an(More)
Mouse knockout studies have indicated that Insl3 is involved in development of the gubernaculum in males, which is essential for normal testicular descent. To determine further the functions of Insl3 we have generated transgenic (TG) mice ubiquitously expressing Insl3. In these mice low levels of transgenic Insl3 mRNA are expressed in all tissues analyzed.(More)
