[Effects of dihydrotestosterone on cultured hair papilla cells and localization of its receptors].

We have reported that cultured papilla cells (PC) grown by isolation and cultivation of human hair papillae show some biological characteristics. In the present study, localization of androgen binding proteins in PC and effects of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) on PC in vitro were examined. Cytochemical staining of PC using DHT-peroxidase conjugate gave positive… CONTINUE READING
