Biochemical factors involved in the FSH action on amino acid transport in immature rat testes.


Testes of 15-day-old rats preincubated and incubated during different times with various doses of FSH (0.2; 2.0 and 20.0 mU/ml) in Krebs-Ringer bicarbonate (KRb) buffer increase the uptake of [14C] methylaminoisobutyric acid and [14C] aminoisobutyric acid. The basal and FSH stimulated amino acid transport occurs at absolute lower levels when the protein or… (More)
