[The effect of ovariectomy and estradiol on DNA, RNA and protein metabolism in the adrenal cortex of rats].

The effects of ovariectomy and oestradiol on incorporation of specific labelled precursors into DNA, RNA and protein were studied. Ovariectomy caused a decrease in the adrenal weight as well as an increase in the DNA content. That effect has been demonstrated most clearly 8 weeks after ovariectomy. Oestradiol treatment of ovariectomized rats during 3 days… CONTINUE READING
