The role of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) in adult rat spermatogenesis is unclear. Although exogenous testosterone (T) restores spermatogenesis following gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) immunization or T plus estradiol (TE) treatments, an assessment of the independent action of T and FSH was not possible, as exogenous T treatment maintains serum FSH levels. We have used passive immunization against FSH to determine whether T alone is capable of reinitiating spermatogenesis after… CONTINUE READING
