This, the first linear morphometric analysis of the epigenesis of the fetal mammalian adrenal cortex, has shown that in the fetal sheep during the latter two thirds of gestation and in the newborn lamb, there are two periods of rapid growth separated by a period of much reduced growth. The fetal ages studies were 53 days (0.36 gestation), a period when the fetal adrenal cortex is actively steroidogenic; 100 days (0.68 gestation), a period of adrenocortical quiescence; 130 days (0.88 gestation… CONTINUE READING
