Aromatization of androstenedione by isolated human hairs

Schweikert HU, Milewich L, Wilson JD


The formation of (3-H) estrone has been demonstrated in human anagen scalp hair roots incubated with (1, 2, 6, 7-3H) androstenedione, and approximate rates of formation of 0.2 pmol of estrone/mg DNA/h were observed. Thus, hair is a potential site for the extraglandular formation of estrogen in man.
