An influence of testosterone on de novo purine nucleotide synthesis has been demonstrated in rat liver of adult and prepubertal castrated rats, showing that the action of the hormone is not limited to sexual organs. Castration accelerated the turnover of purine nucleotides in adults rats and reduced it in prepubertal castrated rats. Administration of testosterone tended to restore normality in both cases with opposite mechanisms, lowering the reaction rates in the first group, enhancing them in the second one. An action of the hormone on the inosinic branch-point and specifically on GMP synthesis, was evident, which was again different according to the age of the animal. The observed changes in purine nucleotide metabolism could be responsible for variations in RNA and DNA metabolism, in cellular size and number--which probably occur in the liver--after orchiectomy and following androgen administration.
