In vitro-metabolism of 3H-progesterone in human testicular tissue: I Adult males.


Androgen biosynthesis in the male gonads may be analysed in some detail by means of in vitro incubation of minor testicular biopsy specimens with various radiolabelled steroid precursors. We have investigated nine adult human male voluteers without apparent gonadal dysfunction with regard to their in vitro metabolism of 3H-progesterone. The following… (More)
