Effects of dexamethasone, corticosterone, and ACTH on lordosis in ovariectomized and adrenalectomized-ovariectomized rats.

Abstract

The involvement of the pituitary-adrenocortical axis in the control of the lordosis reflex was investigated; In Experiment 1, estrogen-primed ovariectomized (ovx) and adrenalectomized-ovariectomized (adx-ovx) females were treated chronically with dexamethasone, a compound blocking ACTH release from the pituitary.
