The developmental pattern of hypophyseal luteinizing hormone (LH) during fetal and early postnatal life, and the capacity of fetal and early postnatal pituitaries to synthesize, release and store LH in the absence of any hypothalamic influence were investigated. Pituitary radioimmunoassayable LH was detectable by fetal day 12; its level remained low up to fetal day 17 and thereafter continued to increase up to postnatal day 2 with sharp rises occurring between day 17 and 18 of gestation and… CONTINUE READING
