Abstract

Castration had no effect on prostatic inhibin-like activity as compared to normal controls. Consequent upon castration there is a significant reduction in the inhibin content of the ventral prostate on a per gland basis. However, when expressed as a function of protein content, there is no change. The data suggest that the very same epithelial cells which under the influence of androgen carry out the characteristic exocrine secretory activity are responsible for the synthesis and secretion of inhibin-like material.
