Study of Steroidogenic Potential of Post-Thaw Biological Material of Mature Ratsâ€™ Testes
Keywords:testosterone, Leydig cells, cooling rate, 3Î²-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase, supercooling
Comparative study of steroidogenic potentials of biological material of testes of mature rats after cryopreservation was performed. Biological materials of testes as cryopreserved suspension of interstitial cells has higher ability to synthesize and secret sexual steroids if compared with testes fragments. Use of designed by us cryopreservation method for interstitial cell suspension (ICS) results in higher integrity of steroidogenic cells if compared with existing analogous regimens.
