Neonatal exposure to estradiol valerate programs ovarian sympathetic innervation and follicular development in the adult rat.

Abstract

A single injection of estradiol valerate (EV) to 14-day-old rats (when the ovarian follicle population has been already established) disrupts cyclicity, increases the activity of key enzymes of androgen biosynthesis, and develops polycystic ovary by a causally related increase in ovarian noradrenaline (NA). The current study examined an early window of… (More)
