Steroid sulfatase (STS) expression in the human temporal lobe : enzyme activity, mRNA expression and immunohistochemistry study

Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and its sulfate (DHEAS) are suggested to be important neurosteroids. We investigated steroid sulfatase (STS) in human temporal lobe biopsies in the context of possible cerebral DHEA(S) de novo biosynthesis. Formation of DHEA(S) in mature human brain tissue has not yet b...
