Role of postnatal gonadal function in the determination of thyrotropin (TSH) releasing hormone-induced TSH response in adult male and female rats.

Abstract

Permanent effects of postnatal gonadal function on the hypothalamo-pituitary-thyroid axis were examined in male and female rats of the Wistar-Imamichi strain. Animals were used at the age of about 10 weeks. Neonatally castrated (NC) males showed a significantly higher plasma TSH response to TRH (10 micrograms/kg BW, ip) than males castrated at 1, 2, 3, 4… (More)
