Stimulation of release of luteinizing hormone from cultured pituitary cells by 2- and 4-hydroxylated oestrogens.

Abstract

We have examined the effect of the catechol oestrogens 2-hydroxyoestradiol (2-OHE2), 4-hydroxyoestradiol (4-OHE2) and 2-hydroxyoestrone (2-OHE1) and their corresponding primary oestrogens on secretion of LH and FSH by enzymatically dispersed rat anterior pituitary cells in monolayer culture. Basal LH levels in the medium were significantly higher than in… (More)
