Guanylate cyclase activity in male pattern baldness. Stimulating effect of 3-beta-androstanediol.

Abstract

Guanylate cyclase (GC) activity was measured in the cytosolic fraction of sebaceous gland-enriched skin samples obtained from alopecic and non-alopecic areas of subjects affected by male pattern baldness. GC activity was significantly higher in alopecic scalp (7.13 +/- 2.7 pmol/min/mg prot; n = 22) than in non-alopecic samples (3.91 +/- 0.48 pmol/min/mg… (More)
