Effect of myxothiazol on Leydig cell steroidogenesis: inhibition of luteinizing hormone-mediated testosterone synthesis but stimulation of basal steroidogenesis.


Studies of MA-10 Leydig cells have shown that intact mitochondria with active respiration are essential for LH-induced Leydig cell steroidogenesis. To further elucidate the role played by mitochondria in steroidogenesis, we examined the effects of the perturbation of the mitochondrial electron transport chain with myxothiazol (MYX) on testosterone… (More)
