The effect of oestradiol and progesterone on hypoglycaemic stress-induced suppression of pulsatile luteinizing hormone release and on corticotropin-releasing hormone mRNA expression in the rat.

Abstract

Corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) is implicated in the suppression of pulsatile luteinizing hormone (LH) secretion by a variety of stressful stimuli; 17beta-oestradiol (E2) has been shown to modulate this inhibitory response. The present study in ovariectomized (OVX) rats was designed to investigate the effect of E2 and progesterone (P4) on… (More)
