Steroids control the aromatase gene expression in purified germ cells from the adult male rat.


The ability of the testis to convert irreversibly androgens into estrogens is related to the presence of a microsomal enzymatic complex named aromatase. In rodents, germ cell production of estrogens is known, although the regulation of the cytochrome p450 aromatase (p450 arom) gene expression is not completely elucidated. In the present study, we have… (More)
