Response of immature, mature nonbreeding and mature breeding ferret testis to exogenous LH stimulation



Response of immature, mature nonbreeding and mature breeding ferret testis to exogenous LH stimulation



Biology of Reproduction 16(2): 244-248



Mature male ferrets undergo an annual period of sexual inactivity during which they resemble immature ferrets in their low plasma testosterone levels (<0.2-5 ng/ml) and reduced testis and epididymal size. Plasma testosterone concentrations in immature, mature nonbreeding and mature breeding male ferrets were compared after stimulation with LH administered by intramuscular injection at doses of 10 and 100 mu g/kg body weight.
