Changes in immunoreactive (ir-) inhibin concentrations in serum throughout pregnancy and early lactation up to one month after parturition were characterized in 6 Japanese monkeys (Macaca fuscata fuscata) by a heterologous radioimmunoassay (RIA) based on a bovine RIA. Serum levels of FSH, LH/monkey chorionic gonadotropin (mCG), estradiol-17 beta, and progesterone were also monitored for the entire period. Ir-inhibin levels in the serum were low (under 0.5 ng/ml) before conception. Three marked… CONTINUE READING
