The effect of gonadotropin pretreatment of hypophysectomized male rats on LH stimulated serum testosterone concentrations was studied. A 5 day pretreatment period began 2 days after hypophysectomy at 21 or 24 days of age. On the day following the pretreatment period the animals received an intraperitoneal injection of saline or LH 60 min before blood collection. Animals pretreated with NIH-FSH-B1, or with doses of LH approximating the amount present in the NIH-FSH, had increased testosterone… CONTINUE READING
