The seasonally reproductive male little brown bat (Myotis lucifugus lucifugus) exhibits marked increases in plasma concentrations of sex steroid-binding protein (SBP) in the spring following arousal from hibernation. In this species an increase in SBP levels is induced prematurely in male bats aroused during the first half of hibernation and housed under long photoperiods; however, this rise is inhibited in bats housed under short photoperiods. In order to investigate the physiological role of… CONTINUE READING
