Metabolic Inhibitors and the Anabolic Actions of Testosterone Propionate

  • E. H. Frieden


The utility of the mouse kidney as a physiological tool for the study of the anabolic action of androgenic steroids is a reflection of the multiplicity of the metabolic responses of this organ to testosterone, its esters, and other androgens. These responses include increases in kidney weight, in nucleic acid content, and in the concentrations of a number of enzymes (1,2). In addition, acute effects of androgens upon the rates of incorporation of precursors into RNA and protein can be demonstrated.
