Possible function of 17 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase in preimplantation hamster embryos.

Abstract

17 beta-Hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (17 beta-HSD) catalyzes the interconversion of estradiol-17 beta (E2) and estrone (E1). The present study is designed to investigate the following: (1) the developmental stage of hamster embryos at which 17 beta-HSD activity first becomes detectable, and (2) the E1----E2 and E2----E1 conversion rate in the… (More)
