Publisher Summary Little is known about the distribution, localisation, and binding of testosterone and its metabolites in vivo in the tissues, the cells, and the cell fractions of the target organs. This is true for the binding to organ proteins, except the binding between testosterone and blood proteins. A theory of the mechanism of action of a hormone, in this case testosterone, is acceptable, if it does not contradict the in vivo findings. To test these theories, investigations were carried… Expand

Experimental study on the male pattern alopecia
TLDR
A cytosol testosterone binding protein is found in the bald and hairy zones of male pattern alopecia and indicates structural differences and greater affinity of the binding protein in bald regions towards testosterone and its steroid competitors. Expand

TLDR
The in vivo binding of testosterone to high molecular weight chemical components of liver and kidney cells of immature rats is examined to study the mechanism of action of this hormone in the organs of mammals. Expand
