The prostate and seminal vesicle (SV) are androgen-dependent secretory glands of the male genital tract. The epithelial cells of these glands produce the bulk of the seminal secretions. The objective of the present study was to examine the ontogeny of cytokeratin and androgen receptor (AR) expression in the rat SV, anterior prostate (AP) and ventral prostate (VP). The study utilized organ culture to examine the effects of androgens on the development of these markers and castration of adult… CONTINUE READING
