The formation of 17β-[3H]estradiol from [l,2,6,7-3H]testosterone was assessed in placenta and central nervous system tissues from rabbit embryos that varied in age from 13–28 days of gestation. In the fetal brain, significant rates of aromatase activity were limited exclusively to the forebrain, and the highest rates of activity.
