The rat ventral prostate synthetizes and secretes a number of relatively abundant proteins, such as Prostatic Binding Protein (PBP), the Proline-Rich Polypeptides (PRP), the 20 or 22-kDa protein and a prostatic protease, which respectively constitute approx. 50, 5, 10 and 2% of the secreted protein. The synthesis of these proteins is androgen-regulated and… CONTINUE READING
