The present study was conducted to study the effect of immunoneutralization against endogenous inhibin on FSH, LH, oestradiol-17 beta and progesterone secretion and to investigate the effect of removal of endogenous inhibin on subsequent follicular development in the hamster. After treatment with anti-inhibin serum (inhibin-AS) at 1100 h on day 2 of the(More)
The time course for loss of ability of Graafian follicles to secrete inhibin and estradiol was investigated during induced follicular atresia. Cyclic hamsters were hypophysectomized on Day 1 (estrus) and injected s.c. with 30 IU eCG. Thereafter, these animals were given a single i.p. injection of antiserum to eCG on the morning of Day 4 to induce follicular(More)
To investigate the physiological importance of oestradiol-17beta and inhibin in the regulation of gonadotrophin secretion in the cyclic golden hamster, females were passively immunized against two hormones. When 200 microL antiserum against oestradiol-17beta (oestradiol-AS) was given on Day 3 (Day 1 = day of ovulation), the preovulatory gonadotrophin surge(More)

1. Two experiments were conducted to investigate the effect of dietary enzyme supplementation of a low-protein diet on performance, nitrogen excretion, fat deposition, hepatic lipogenic and lipolytic enzyme activity in 7-21- (Experiment 1) and 21-42-d-old (Experiment 2) male broiler chicks. 2. Chicks were given diets containing 210 g (Experiment 1) or 170 g(More)
