BACKGROUND Studies using purified enzyme preparations, placental microsomes or cell lines have shown that certain phytoestrogens can inhibit the enzymes that convert androgens to estrogens, namely aromatase and 17beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (HSD) type 1 and type 5. The study aim was to investigate the effects of selected phytoestrogens on aromatase and 17beta-HSD type 1 activity in primary cultures of human granulosa-luteal (GL) cells. METHODS AND RESULTS GL cells, cultured for 48 h in… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Effects of phytoestrogen daidzein and estradiol on steroidogenesis and expression of estrogen receptors in porcine luteinized granulosa cells from large follicles.
TLDR
The soy estrogen daidzein acts directly on the porcine ovary to decrease progesterone production and to increase expression of ERbeta mRNA and protein.
Induction and inhibition of aromatase (CYP19) activity by natural and synthetic flavonoid compounds in H295R human adrenocortical carcinoma cells.
TLDR
Light is shed on the structure-activity relationships for aromatase inhibition as well as mechanisms of induction in human H295R cells.
Synergistic effects between FSH and 1,1-dichloro-2,2-bis(P-chlorophenyl)ethylene (P,P'-DDE) on human granulosa cell aromatase activity.
TLDR
Concentrations of DDE similar to those present in human follicular fluid enhance basal and FSH-stimulated granulosa cell aromatizing enzyme activity.
Running Title: Fsh-mediated Progestin Production
TLDR
It is shown that follicular cells associated with primary growth (previtellogenic) oocytes of the gilthead seabream also express cyp17a2 and cbr1, in addition to P450c17-I (cyP17a1) and aromatase (cyp19a1), enzymes required for E2 synthesis.
Piscine Follicle-Stimulating Hormone Triggers Progestin Production in Gilthead Seabream Primary Ovarian Follicles1
TLDR
A functional Fshra-activated Cyp17a2/Cbr1 steroidogenic pathway in gilthead seabream primary ovarian follicles triggering the production of 17,20beta-P is suggested.

Hormonal regulation of rat 17 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 in cultured rat granulosa cells: effects of recombinant follicle-stimulating hormone, estrogens, androgens, and epidermal growth factor.
TLDR
expression of 17HSD type 1 in rat granulosa cells is under multihormonal regulation and the enzyme is regulated by FSH, via cAMP, and the effect of FSH is modulated by estrogens, androgen, and EGF.
Effect of the aromatase inhibitor 4-hydroxyandrostene-3,17-dione progesterone synthesis by human luteal cells.
Expression of 17 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase in human granulosa cells: correlation with follicular size, cytochrome P450 aromatase activity and oestradiol production.
TLDR
The data suggest that type 1 17-HSD and P450arom are expressed in parallel during the latest stages of follicular maturation but, in cultured granulosa-luteal cells, the enzymes are regulated by distinct mechanisms.
Aromatase and 17beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase inhibition by flavonoids.
Estrogen-Specific 17β-Hydroxysteroid Oxidoreductase Type 1 (E.C. 1.1.1.62) as a Possible Target for the Action of Phytoestrogens
TLDR
Several plant estrogens, especially coumestrol and genistein, were found to reduce the conversion of 17β-HSOR Type 1 catalyzed by estrogenspecific 17 β-hydroxysteroid oxidoreductase Type 1 in vitro, and they may thus replace endogenous estrogens.
Acute and chronic effects of genistein, tyrphostin and lavendustin A on steroid synthesis in luteinized human granulosa cells.
TLDR
Genistein directly inhibits 3 and 17beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase activity, whilst tyrphostin has an acute stimulatory effect on aromatase activity.
Oestradiol production by luteinized human granulosa cells: evidence of the stimulatory action of recombinant human follicle stimulating hormone.
TLDR
Testosterone supplementation caused considerably higher basal oestradiol concentrations, however rFSH failed to further stimulate the oestrogen release from granulosa-lutein cells, suggesting that these cells cultured in vitro possess high aromatase activity even without rF SH support.
