The results showed that twoisoforms of HO were present in rat ventral prostate. The epithelial cells of acini and fibromuscular stroma of the rat prostte displayed HO-1 immunoreactivity, whereas HO-2 immunostaining was only examined to be in the acinar cells. Both at protein and transcript levels, HO-1 in castrated group was markedly decreased compared with the normal control group (P<0.01). In groups of exogenous administration of androgen and estrogen HO-1 was much higher than that in the control groups (P<0.01). However, estrogen increasd HO-1 protein level in prostate stroma, while the levels of HO-1 did not ive any evidence of change among all groups (P>0.05). These findings suggest that expression of HO-1 gene is induced by sex hormones, in contrast, there is no change in HO-2 expression. We speculate that CO-HO system is possibly involved in the pathologic processes processes of prostates abnormal proliferation induced by sex hormones and that CO derived from HO-1 may play an important role in the regulation of smooth muscle activity in rat prostate.
