To test whether the mesonephros influences the steroid hormone release by the foetal and neonatal ovary, rabbit ovaries were cultured with and without the mesonephros for a period of 5 days. The media were harvested once every day and analyzed by RIA for the content of testosterone, oestradiol and progesterone. Mesonephros produced progesterone only at day 20 pc. At day 21 and 28 pc significant amounts of all three hormones were produced. The media of the co-cultures of ovaries with the… CONTINUE READING
