Previous work with female rats showed that serum levels of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) are suppressed by gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) antagonists less than are levels of serum luteinizing hormone (LH), suggesting a lesser dependency of FSH on GnRH stimulation. The differential regulation of LH and FSH is known to have some aspects that are sexually asymmetrical, and it was of interest to see if males also show differential gonadotropin suppressibility after injection of an… CONTINUE READING
