In this study, STC1 expression levels were determined at various postnatal developmental stages in rat ovaries and testes. The expression pattern of STC1 was found to be sexually dimorphic. In addition we examined the effect of exogenous glucocorticoids, dexamethasone (DEX), testosterone, follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and dibutyryl cAMP (dbcAMP) on STC1 expression in rat primary Sertoli cell cultures. Our results showed that DEX (via glucocorticoids receptor) stimulated while dbcAMP… CONTINUE READING
