The effect of aging and melatonin on in vitro pituitary responsiveness to luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) was studied. Young cyclic (3-months-old) control (cyclic-control, N = 15), and melatonin (MEL) treated for 2 months (150 microg/100 g BW) (cyclic-MEL, N = 15), old acyclic (23-months-old) control (acyclic-control, N = 13), and MEL-treated (acyclic-MEL, N = 18) rats were used. The hormones analyzed were luteinizing hormone (LH), follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and prolactin… CONTINUE READING
