We report the expression of TrkA, TrkB and TrkC mRNAs in adult rat testis. With in situ hybridisation a low signal for TrkB and TrkC could be seen in postmeiotic cells of the seminiferous epithelium, whereas no signal for TrkA could be observed in untreated animals. Animals treated with hCG showed an induction of TrkA mRNA in premeiotic cells 12 h after the treatment, whereas an injection with EDS had no effect on the expression of Trk mRNAs. With the RNAse protection assay a low signal for… CONTINUE READING
