Gonadotropin stimuli increase adrenodoxin immunoreactivity in the mitochondria of rat ovarian cells.

Adrenodoxin is a component of the electron transfer system for mitochondrial cytochrome P450 in steroidogenic cells. To elucidate whether the steroidogenic state can modulate the amount and the distribution of adrenodoxin in the mitochondria, we determined immunohistochemically the distribution of adrenodoxin and 3beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (3betaHSD… CONTINUE READING
