Catecholamine concentration in the adrenal chromaffin tissue of common myna acridotheres tristis tristis after sex steroid treatment



Catecholamine concentration in the adrenal chromaffin tissue of common myna acridotheres tristis tristis after sex steroid treatment



Journal of Reproductive Biology & Comparative Endocrinology 4(2): 66-69



The effects of testosterone propionate and progesterone on adrenal medullary hormones were studied in the Common Myna (Acridotheres tristis tristis). A significant reduction of epinephrine occurred in the adrenal due to the treatment of both the sex-steroids. However, an appreciable elevation was noticed in norepinephrine concentration. Probably the decline in phenylethanolamine-N-methyl transferase (PNMT) activity is responsible for the decrease in epinephrine.
