Our radioimmunoassay data reveal that ovariectomy for either one or two months resulted in a significant decrease in the GnRH content of the mouse basal hypothalamus, while in mice ovariectomized for two weeks the GnRH levels did not differ significantly from controls. Parallel immunocytochemical analyses gave similar results. Tissue sections from specific… (More)
