Two photoperiod-controlled neuroendocrine systems appear to suppress secretion of tonic luteinizing hormone (LH) in anestrous ewes: a steroid-independent system that decreases LH pulse frequency in ovariectomized ewes and a steroid-dependent system whereby estradiol gains the capacity to suppress LH pulse frequency in anestrus. This study was designed to test the hypothesis that serotonergic neurons inhibit LH pulse frequency in ovariectomized ewes and to examine the possible interaction of… CONTINUE READING
