To determine whether long-term administration of growth hormone (GH)-releasing factor (GRF) and(or) thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) alters ovarian follicular fluid (FFL) concentrations of insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I), progesterone, and estradiol (E2), and follicular growth, Friesian x Hereford heifers (n = 47; 346 +/- 3 kg) were divided into the following four groups: control (vehicle; n = 11); 1 micrograms GRF (human [Des NH2 Tyr1, D-Ala2, Ala15] GRF [1-29]-NH2).kg-1 BW.d-1 (n = 12… CONTINUE READING
