Abstract

Normative biochemical values for cranial prostate, caudal prostate, and seminal vesicles were obtained in four macaque species and in baboons, with a view to chemical comparison of the cranial lobe with the other two tissues. The cranial prostatic lobe and the seminal vesicles were both significantly different from the caudal prostate in prostatic acid phosphatase activity. However, citric acid and lactate dehydrogenase in the cranial lobe were comparable to concentrations in the caudal lobe and significantly different from the seminal vesicles. Dihydro-testosterone was higher in content than testosterone in all tissues of each species examined. The nonhuman primate cranial lobe seems to be a link between the seminal vesicles and the caudal prostate.
