We studied the action of catecholestrogens on prostaglandin and LH release by female rat pituitaries superfused in vitro. Their actions were compared to those of estradiol (E2) at the same concentration (10−6 M). By comparison with E2 the action of 2-OHE2 was only the same on total PGE2 release. 4-OHE2-17β stimulated LH like E2 but the values for PGD2 and… CONTINUE READING
