The effect of transforming growth factor-beta 1 (TGF-beta 1) and interleukin-1 beta (IL-1 beta) on LDL receptor in Hep G2 cells was investigated. A greater than two-fold stimulation of the binding and internalisation of [125I]-labelled LDL at 37 degrees C was observed after an 18-h incubation of the cells with TGF-beta 1 at 50 ng/ml and IL-1 beta at 11,700(More)
The formation of a testis from the indifferent gonad is the prelude to sequential steps in male sex differentiation orchestrated by time-dependent androgen biosynthesis and action. Information about the cellular and molecular mechanisms of androgen action can be obtained by the study of disorders of sex differentiation in males. The pivotal role of the(More)
