Steroid metabolism in cultured mammalian astrocytes

thesis
posted on 2006-01-01, 00:00 authored by Michael. Lovelace
This thesis explores the metabolism of the steroid progesterone within both rat and mouse brain cells in culture. The research identified a steroid 21-hydroxylase within the rat culture system, that has downstream implications on stress and behaviour. Novel uses for a stain to accurately discriminate two brain celltypes were discovered.
