Expression of aromatase and two isozymes of 5α-reductase in the developing green anole forebrain.


Neural steroids, as well as the enzymes that produce these hormones, are important for sexual differentiation of the brain during development. Aromatase converts testosterone into oestradiol. 5α-reductase converts testosterone to 5α-dihydrotestosterone and occurs in two isozymes: type 1 (5αR1) and type 2 (5αR2). Each of these enzymes is present in the… (More)
