Interrenal function during amphibian metamorphosis: in vitro biosynthesis of radioactive corticosteroids from (4(14)C)-progesterone by interrenal in Xenopus laevis tadpoles.


Whole kidneys of Xenopus laevis tadpoles (containing interrenal cells) or the outer postero-dorsal part of adult kidney (containing a few or no interrenal cells) were incubated with (4(14)C)-progesterone. Methylene chloride extractable radioactivity of tissue homogenates in their incubation medium were purified by sequential paper chromatography and… (More)
