Immunoneutralization of LH releasing hormone (LHRH) by the i.v. administration of LHRH antiserum in the preovulatory period in the ewe resulted in a prompt abolition of the pulsatile secretion of LH without alteration of basal plasma levels of LH. This resulted in an immediate cessation of the pulsatile secretion of ovarian oestradiol, with no change in the secretion rate of androstenedione or plasma levels of FSH. The ovarian secretion rate of testosterone increased significantly. Twenty to… CONTINUE READING
