Effect of progesterone on LH-releasing activity of the hypothalamus in non-laying hens primed with oestradiol.

Abstract

LH-releasing activity of the hypothalamus in non-laying hens following the injection of progesterone was increased in hens that had been treated with oestradiol 4 h earlier. Short-term priming with oestradiol may be effective in increasing the responsiveness of the hen hypothalamus to progesterone.
