  • SummaryUsing a preparation of highly purified, adult rat Leydig cells and conditions of culture which we found to optimize testosterone production during 24 h, we sought to maintain optimal testosterone production for 3 d. Leydig cells cultured on Cytodex 3 beads at 19% O2 in Dulbecco's modified Eagle's medium-Ham's nutrient mixture F12 (1:1; vol/vol) containing 0.5 mg/ml, total bovine lipoproteins (<1.222 g/ml) with maximal luteinizing hormone (LH) stimulation failed to maintain a constant… CONTINUE READING
