I would appreciate cites for studies exploring endogeous pathways for the 
mammalian production of 5-alpha reducatase and for 5-beta-reductase. Of 
particular interest are studies that examine both substances and 
steroids derived therefrom as well as behavioral studies that examine 
both enzymes and/or their specific steroids.

The following is an example:
	AU  - Schlinger BA et al
	TI  - 5 beta-reductase and other androgen-metabolizing enzymes in 
	      primary cultures of developing zebra finch telencephalon.
	SO  - J Neuroendocrinology 7(3):187-92 1995

I am using Medline in this quest, but sometimes human memory banks search 
more poignantly, especially with regard to studies reflecting awareness 
of the significance of the two enzymes and their "symbiotic"  relationship.
