Pituitary tissue obtained from proestrous, phenobarbital-treated hamsters was placed in organ culture, and the release rates of FSH and LH were monitored. Addition of LHRH to the culture medium increased gonadotropin release rates. Preincubation of pituitaries in medium that contained 1 microgram purified FSH ( NIADDK rat FSH-I-5) resulted in enhanced basal… CONTINUE READING
