This paper reviews our current understanding of the function and operation of the follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH)-inhibin feedback loop in the male rhesus monkey (Macaca mulatta). Inhibin B is the major testicular inhibin in the monkey, and the pattern of secretion of this hormone during postnatal development is temporally coupled to that of gonadotropin. Inhibin B secretion by the Sertoli cell is stimulated by FSH and inhibited by luteinizing hormone (LH), the latter presumably acting via… CONTINUE READING
