The effects of photoperiod and steroid hormones on immune function were assessed in male and female deer mice (Peromyscus maniculatus). In experiment 1, male deer mice were castrated, castrated and given testosterone replacement, or sham-operated. Half of each experimental group were subsequently housed in either long (LD 16:8) or short days (LD 8:16) for 10 weeks. Short-day deer mice underwent reproductive regression and displayed elevated lymphocyte proliferation in response to the T-cell… CONTINUE READING
