Sample text

Using RNase protection assays, we did not detect P450scc mRNA in any of the tissues analyzed. However P450c11` mRNA (11` hydroxylase), but not the mRNAs for P450c11AS (aldosterone synthase) or P450c17 (17_ hydroxylase), was detected by RNase protection assays. We could only detect P450scc mRNA, but not P450c17 nor P450c11AS mRNA, in our primary glial cultures or rat brains after amplification of RNA by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and Southern blotting, thus indicating that the abundance of this mRNA was extremely low.
