Sex steroids play an important role in skin morphology and physiology. To evaluate the specific effects of sex steroids, the thickness of each skin layer was measured in intact and gonadectomized (GDX) male and female mice, as well as in GDX animals treated for 3 wk with 17beta-estradiol (E2), dihydrotestosterone (DHT), or their precursor dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA). Morphological analysis shows that the dorsal skin of intact male is thicker than in the female, whereas the epidermis and… CONTINUE READING
