Stereological studies on the effects of pinealectomy, melatonin and oestradiol on the adrenal cortex of ovariectomised rats.

Abstract

The aim of the study was to examine by means of stereology the effects of pinealectomy and melatonin on the structure of the adrenal cortex of ovariectomised rats and to check whether the effect of oestradiol on the rat adrenal cortex is modified by the pineal gland. Neither pinealectomy (73 days) nor melatonin treatment (10 micrograms/day for 17 days… (More)
