Effect of genotype on hormonal activity of Leydig's cells in inbred mice with stress

Abstract

Acute stress depresses the endocrine function of Leydig's cell in PT and CBA/Lac mice, whereas in A/Sn and BALB/c mice blood testosterone level and the function of Leydig's cells are virtually intact in stress. This difference can be due to genetic differences in the reactions of the hypothalamo-pituitary-gonadal and hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal systems.
