Androgen metabolism by rat epididymis. 4. The formation of conjugates.

The ability to form androgen conjugates and the hormone dependency of the conjugating enzymes have been studied in the rat epididymis. Following the in vitro incubation of 3H-testosterone with epididymal slices from intact and castrated rats, the radioactivity recovered was partitioned between water and ether. Examination of the water soluble radioactivity… CONTINUE READING
