The effects of hCG and various pituitary hormones on type I insulin-like growth factor (IGF) receptors of purified Leydig cells of hypophysectomized rats were studied. The number of type I IGF receptors of Leydig cells obtained from hypophysectomized rats (18.0 +/- 1.5 fmol/10(6) cells) was lower than that in normal rats (54.6 +/- 5.3 fmol/10(6) cells; P… CONTINUE READING
