The possible role played by glucocorticoids (GCs) in the development of thymic stromal cell components has been studied in the progeny of adrenalectomized pregnant rats (FAdx), an experimental model which ensures the absence of GCs until the establishment of the fetal hypothalamus-pituitary gland-adrenal gland axis. As previously demonstrated for thymocytes… CONTINUE READING
