Studies were performed on the reactivity of the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenocortical axis of intact, gonadectomized, and testosterone- or estradiol-replaced rats to standard ether stress. Plasma ACTH and corticosterone (B) levels, anterior pituitary ACTH, and adrenal B content were estimated 20 and 40 min after stress application and in unstressed animals. Ether stress resulted in an increase in plasma ACTH and B levels and in adrenal B content while pituitary ACTH content was notably lower… CONTINUE READING
