Abstract

Effects of brief treatment of growth factors on the urogenital sinus of embryonic rats were investigated and it was found that 8 hour-treatment in the beginning of 5-day cultivation with the epidermal growth factor (EGF) or transforming growth factor-alpha (TGF-alpha) can provoke prostatic bud formation, in the medium deprived of androgens.
