Pituitary and testicular responses in sexually mature bulls after intravenous injections of graded doses of LH-releasing hormone.


The capacity of the anterior pituitary gland and testes in mature bulls (705 +/- 9 (S.E.M.) kg body wt, n = 4) to respond to graded doses of LH-releasing hormone (LHRH) was assessed relative to endogenous profiles of LH and testosterone secretion.
