Changes in (3H)leucine incorporation into pineal proteins following estradiol or testosterone administration: involvement of the sympathetic superior cervical ganglion.


Pineal denervation by superior cervical ganglionectomy (Gx) decreased high affinity binding of estradiol (E2) to the pineal cytosol of female rats and of testosterone to the cytosol of male rats by 40 and 26% and by 75 and 80%, 5 and 14 days after sugery; hormone binding remained unchanged up to 24 h after surgery. Binding to the nuclear fraction decreased… (More)
