Hormonal regulation of sympathetic neuron development. The effects of neonatal castration.

The effects of neonatal castration on neuronal ontogeny were examined in peripheral sympathetic ganglia in male Sprague-Dawley rats. Tyrosine hydroxylase (T-OH) activity, the rate-limiting enzyme in catecholamine biosynthesis and a marker of noradrenergic maturation, was examined in the hypogastric (HG) and superior cervical ganglion (SCG). Initial studies… CONTINUE READING
