The expression pattern of genes involving in cholesterol biosynthesis pathway in DHT-treated rat ovaries. (A) A modified cholesterol biosynthesis pathway outlined by [51,52] and the intermediate and final products performed by repressed genes in DHT-treated ovaries. The genes are indicated in green box while the intermediate products are described in white box. (B) The expression pattern of genes involving in cholesterol biosynthesis in DHT-treated ovaries compared to CTL. FC: The average fold change reduction in DHT compared to CTL. P value: the significant level. The red color indicates the activated transcript in CTL level while the green color shows the repressed expression pattern of a specific gene in DHT rat groups.
