The concentrations of several mRNAs in mouse kidney increase in response to testosterone. To determine if the increases are generated at the level of gene transcription, we have assayed transcription rates for several androgen-inducible mRNAs in kidney nuclei in vitro. No significant changes were found in the synthesis of three mRNAs whose concentrations increase 10-20-fold during testosterone treatment. Kinetic analysis of changes in transcript levels after testosterone administration and withdrawal suggests that mRNA stabilization is a major factor in the inductions. Thus, the androgen-mediated induction of these kidney mRNAs is generated predominantly at the posttranscriptional level.
