Recent pharmacological studies have suggested a role for neuropeptide Y (NPY) in control of LH secretion. The present study examined the effects of estradiol benzoate (EB) given alone or in combination with progesterone (P), on the concentrations of immunoreactive NPY in microdissected nuclei of the rat brain, in association with changes in LHRH concentrations and LH release. Forty-eight hours after the administration of EB to ovariectomized rats, serum LH was significantly reduced… CONTINUE READING
