Prostatic stromal cell Blood Vessel Nucleus Dihydrotestosterone promotes the transcription rate of many genes. Among others, there is the prostaglandin D2 gene. In consequence, since it is in low concentration, less of this prostaglandin D2 will be produced and, thus, this will not be able to promote the proliferation of prostate cells. The low concentration of dihydrotestosterone slow the cell proliferation, permits hair regrowth and a slower hair lost.
