Modulation of gene expression by androgen and oestrogens in the testis and prostate of the adult rat following androgen withdrawal.

Androgens are important for the structural and functional integrity of the testis and the prostate and this may in part be mediated by the aromatisation of testosterone to oestradiol. The aim of the present study was to establish an in vivo model that would allow the identification of genes, the expression of which was regulated acutely by androgen and/or… CONTINUE READING
