Differential gene expression of growth factors in young and old rat penile tissues is associated with erectile dysfunction


The molecular mechanisms of erectile dysfunction with aging are unclear. Recent studies have suggested that growth factors may play a role in the etiology of erectile dysfunction. This present study was designed to test the hypothesis that gene expression of various growth factors such as TGFα, TGFβ1, TGFβ2, TGFβ3, IGF and NGF modulate with aging in rat… (More)
