Sham operated control toads (non castrated) have shown increased activity in regard to the hematological parameters in comparison to the castrated toads kept under simulated hypoxic condition. Injection of plasma from sham operated control toads exposed to hypoxic stimulation initiates erythropoiesis in starved toads, whereas plasma from castrated exposed to the same hypoxic stimulation failed to do so. It can be suggested that in toad, testis is the only organ responsible for controlling… CONTINUE READING
