Action of LH, FSH and (Bu)2 cAMP on the conversion of [3H]19-hydroxyandrostenedione into oestrogens by foetal and infantile rat ovaries in organ culture.


PMID 2157921

Abstract

Ovaries from 18-21-day-old foetal as well as from 2-10-day-old infantile rats were cultured in vitro in the presence of [3H]19-hydroxyandrostenedione and in the presence or absence of LH, FSH or (Bu)2 cAMP, and oestrone and oestradiol formed were determined by double isotopic dilution and recrystallization to constant specific activity. In foetal ovaries, the stimulation factor with FSH was 0.9-1.3, which was considered insignificant in comparison with the 8-13-fold stimulation obtained with (Bu)2 cAMP. At infantile stages, aromatase activity was stimulated 1.3-3.5-fold, which was close to the 3.9-fold stimulation obtained with (Bu)2cAMP. LH was ineffective at both foetal and infantile stages.
