The effects of 17beta-estradiol (E2), progesterone (P4), 20alpha-hydroxypregn-4-en-3-one (20alpha-OHP4), and testosterone (T) on the basal and LRF-induced secretion of LH and FSH were studies in monolayer cultures prepared from the pituitaries of adult female rats. Day 4 cultures were used and all steroids were tested at 10-8M concentration for 4 hr. E2(More)
The relationship between 17 beta-estradiol (E2) stimulation of luteinizing hormone (LH) response to LH-releasing hormone (LHRH) and E2 effect on LHRH binding was examined in pituitary monolayer cultures prepared from female rats. E2 pretreatment significantly (P less than 0.05) augmented the LHRH-induced LH release to 158-180% of the non-E2-treated(More)
The role of testosterone (T) in the modulation of pituitary follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) sensitivity to DBcAMP was examined in the pituitary monolayer cultures prepared from intact young female rats. Hormone contents in media and cell homogenates were determined by radioimmunoassays. Incubation with 8 and 4 mM DBcAMP for 4(More)
Effects of 17 beta-estradiol (E2) on adenosine 3',5'-cyclic monophosphate (cAMP) binding and luteinizing hormone (LH) and prolactin (PRL) responses to N6-O-2'-dibutyryl cAMP (DBcAMP) were examined in pituitary monolayer cultures prepared from female rats. Incubation with 8 mM DBcAMP for 4 h significantly (P less than 0.05) increased both LH and PRL release(More)
The effect of changing endocrine status on the uterine endometrium of the female Fischer rat was observed in vivo after neonatal androgenization, after aging, after estrogen (E) implant in ovariectomized (OVX) rats, and in vitro after progesterone (P) addition to monolayer cultures of uterine tumor cells. Neonatal androgenization produced cystic ovarian(More)

Because luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) stimulates both pituitary cAMP production and LH release, cAMP has been implicated in the action of LHRH on LH release. The effects of LHRH and DBcAMP on LH release were tested in 4-h incubations with pituitary cultures prepared from male or female rats. LH contents in medium and cells were separately(More)
