A site for estradiol priming of progesterone-facilitated sexual receptivity in the ventrolateral hypothalamus of female guinea pigs.

Abstract

The induction of progestin receptors by estradiol in the mediobasal hypothalamus (MBH) has been correlated with progesterone facilitation of sexual receptivity in female guinea pigs. We used an immunocytochemical technique to visualize the induction of progestin receptors by estradiol in a population of neurons correlated with estradiol-induced… (More)
