Ovariectomized rats with cannula over the medial basal hypothalamus (MBH) received implants of 3 alpha-diol conjugated to bovine serum albumin (BSA; 3 alpha-diol:BSA), free 3 alpha-diol diluted with BSA (3 alpha-diol&BSA), progesterone (P) conjugated to BSA (P:BSA), free P diluted with BSA (P&BSA), or BSA alone. 3 alpha-diol:BSA or 3 alpha-diol&BSA facilitated receptivity within 90 min. Other estradiol-treated rats received steroid implants in the preoptic area (POA); those receiving P:BSA or P… CONTINUE READING
