ABSTRACT

Following the intravenous administration of [3H] 5α-dihydrotestosterone to adult castrated male rats, the highest uptake of radioactivity was found in the liver and the prostate, in contrast to the much lower uptake in muscle tissue and blood. The results were essentially the same as after the administration of [3H] testosterone. The uptake in the prostate was, however, retained for a long period of time, while the concentration of radioactivity in the liver decreased rapidly after administration and was already lower than that in the prostate after 30 minutes.

After the injection of [3H] 5α-dihydrotestosterone in vivo, the labelled adrogen was found to be associated with macromolecules in the prostatic cytosol and with salt extractable nuclear macromolecules.
