Bioactive and immunoreactive FSH concentrations in ewe and ram lambs over the first year of life.

Abstract

Several studies suggest that the concentration of immunoreactive (I) FSH measured in peripheral plasma by radioimmunoassay does not always reflect the level of bioactive (B) hormone capable of eliciting a biological response (e.g. oestradiol synthesis by Sertoli cells in vitro). The aim of this study was to measure both B-FSH and I-FSH concentrations in… (More)
