Effects of chronic hypogonadism on corticosterone secretion and cyclic AMP production in male rat adrenocortical cells.


AIM To determine the secretion of corticosterone (CCS) both in vivo and in vitro during different intervals after orchidectomy in male rats. METHODS Three- and 12-month-old rats had been orchidectomized 0, 3, 6, or 9 months before decapitation. RESULTS Orchidectomy increased the concentrations of plasma CCS, the basal release of CCS, and the adenosine 3… (More)
