Antagonizing diestrous progesterone actions in cyclic rats by s.c. injections of the antiprogesterone RU486 (2 mg twice a day from metestrus through proestrus) increased LH and decreased FSH basal serum concentrations. Ovariectomy at metestrus (0800 h) increased serum levels of both gonadotropins in controls and reversed the RU486-induced dissociation of basal gonadotropin secretion. RU486-dissociated gonadotropin secretion is also dependent upon LHRH, since treatment (s.c.) with 1 mg GnRH… CONTINUE READING
