These experiments were designed to determine utero-ovarian vein blood flow and ovarian secretion rates and the ability of ACTH, LH, or FSH to modify these parameters in the cyclic hamster. Hamsters were anesthetized with pentobarbital, and polyethylene cannulae were introduced into the utero-ovarian and femoral veins. Five-minute blood samples were collected from the utero-ovarian vein for 50 min. After the second blood sample, ACTH (10 μg/100 g BW), LH (2.5 μg/100 g BW), or FSH (10 μg/ 100 g… 
Study of the luteinizing hormone-induced increase of ovarian blood flow during the estrous cycle in the rat.
TLDR
It was concluded that in LH-induced hyperemia, cAMP, prostaglandins and other vasoactive metabolites released during the process of hormone synthesis, and also a beta-adrenergic mechanism, are involved in the regulation of ovarian blood flow.
Intravascular pressure and diameter profile of the utero-ovarian resistance artery network: estrous cycle-dependent modulation of resistance artery tone.
TLDR
The data show that resistance arteries comprise a critical part of a complex network designed for intimate local communication and control and suggest that these arteries may play an important role in regulating ovarian blood flow in an estrous cycle-specific manner.
The effects of prolactin and gonadotropin on luteal function and morphology in the cyclic golden hamster.
TLDR
The results suggest that PRL restrains luteal apoptosis and maintains lUTEal morphology and that the combination of PRL and eCG restraining not only structural but also functional luteAL regression in the cyclic hamster.
Acute effects of unilateral sectioning the superior ovarian nerve of rats with unilateral ovariectomy on ovarian hormones (progesterone, testosterone and estradiol) levels vary during the estrous cycle
TLDR
Results support the idea that the ovaries send and receive neural information that is processed in the central nervous system and propose that this information participates in controlling the secretion of gonadotropins related to the regulation of ovarian functions.
A subovarian exchange mechanism for the countercurrent transfer of ovarian steroid hormones in the pig.
TLDR
It was demonstrated that the ovarian arterial branches supplying the ovarian pedicle muscles after capillarization form the veins which descend within the ovarian artery network, redivide and create the venous mesh covering the spiralling ovarian artery branches.
Cyclic nucleotides, DNA, and steroid levels in ovarian follicles and corpora lutea of the cyclic hamster.
TLDR
It appears that in the hamster Cl 7-20 lyase is a pivotal enzyme controlled by gonadotropins or steroids and that 17-OH-P may represent a metabolic endpoint similar to 20- OH-P in the rat.
A New In Vivo Microvascular Preparation of the Hamster Ovary
TLDR
Key findings included extremely high microvascular permeability that varied with the day of the estrous cycle and functionally significant architectural features of the utero‐ovarian vascular network.

TLDR
Ovarian blood flow was determined before and after a single intravenous injection of LH to anaesthetized, post-pubertal virgin rabbits, using 15 plus or minus 5 mum microspheres, labelled with Ytterbium-169 and Scandium-46 to study the mechanism of the LH induced ovarian vasodilatation.
Peripheral blood and ovarian levels of sex steroids in the cyclic hamster.
TLDR
The refractory period of estrogen synthesis on the evening of Day 4 cannot be attributed to insufficient levels of LH during the preovulatory period, and the circulating levels of A probably reflect altered secretion rates of other steroids.
Steroid and gonadotropin levels during the luteal-follicular shift of the cyclic hamster.
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the shift from the luteal phase to the follicular phase is a gradual process involving concomitant declining levels of P and increasing levels of E2, and suggest that the transitory increase of gonadotropins and/or declining Levels of P are causally related to enhanced follicular secretion of E 2 and androgen.

TLDR
It is suggested that in dogs ACTH exerts its ovarian blood flow stimulatory effect by releasing PGE2 or some similar agent(s), and the effect of both agents can be characterized by a common equation.
Sequential study of luteinizing hormone (LH) and "Progestin" secretion on the afternoon of proestrus in the rat.
TLDR
Secretion rates of progesterone rose sharply after 4:30 PM and exhibited peak levels (40-fold change) at 8:00 PM and 20a-OHpregn- 4-en-3-one secretion rates (μg/hr/ovary) were hi...
AN EFFECT OF LUTEINIZING HORMONE ON THE FRACTIONAL PERFUSION OF THE RAT OVARY.
TLDR
The 42K method of Sapirstein has been modified to estimate the effect of gonadotropins on ovarian fractional blood flow, and it is possible that one function of this hormone involves the cyclic regulation of ovarian blood flow.
The effects of phenobarbital and gonadal steroids on periovulatory serum levels of luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone in the hamster.
TLDR
Levels of LH and FSH in animals treated with a single or double dose of Phen or Phen plus E2 or T were not different during the periovulatory period, while FSH levels on estrus in hamsters injected with P alone or in combination with E2 were intermediate between those of controls and animals given Phen only.
Progesterone levels in the cyclic and pregnant hamster.
TLDR
Several lines of evidence suggest that the progesterone was derived from nonluteal sources, with the interstitium as a major contributor.
Dissociation of ovulation and progesterone secretion following LH or FSH treatment of hypophysectomized proestrous hamsters.
TLDR
Hamsters hypophysectomized with FSH ovulated the normal complement of 10–12 tubal ova the next morning and the ability of FSH to induce ovulation could not be accounted for by LH contamination.
Estrone, estradiol, progesterone and 17 -hydroxyprogesterone in the ovarian venous plasma during the estrous cycle of the hamster.
To help elucidate the pattern and interrelationship of the secretion of steroid hormones in laboratory animals measurements were made of estrone estradiol progesterone and 17alpha-hydroxyprogesterone
