Effects of hyperprolactinemia on FSH- or LH-induced activities of 17 beta-oxidoreductase, 5 alpha-reductase, and 17-hydroxylase in hypophysectomized rat testes.

Abstract

Two pituitaries from 7-week-old female rats (Sprague-Dawley strain) were grafted under the capsule of the left kidney of a 49-day old male rat. The pituitary grafted and sham-operated rats were hypophysectomized at 56 days of age. The hypophysectomized rats were given daily injections of NIAMDD-oFSH-13 (20 micrograms/0.5 ml saline), NIAMDD-oLH-23 (9… (More)
