Abstract

We studied the regulation of aromatase activity in the hypothalamus-preoptic area (HPOA) of adult male rats using a sensitive in vitro assay which measures the amount of 3H2O formed by tissue homogenates during the conversion of [1β-3H]androstenedione to estrone. After castration, HPOA aromatase activity was decreased by 60% (P
