To authenticate further the testicular androgen independent status of synthesis and secretion of inhibin‐like material by the rat ventral prostate, explants of this organ were maintained for a period of 6 days in vitro, altering the kind of medium used for culture. The various spent media had significant inhibin‐like activity despite the absence of sera supplement in some cases.
