Pineal glands of regularly cycling Sprague Dawley rats (180–220 g) killed on the diestrous morning (between 0900–1000 h) were incubated in appropriate media for six hours with LHRH (8.5 ΜM), progesterone (3.2 ΜM), estradiol-17 Β (370 nM) or dexamethasone (250 nM). Pineals incubated in hormone-free medium and unincubated glands served as controls. Six rats were used in each group. After incubation the glands were divided into two parts. One part was used to estimate serotonin N-acetyltransferase… CONTINUE READING
