The role of FSH and LH in the initiation of ovulation in rats and hamsters: a study using rabbit antisera to ovine FSH and LH



The role of FSH and LH in the initiation of ovulation in rats and hamsters: a study using rabbit antisera to ovine FSH and LH



Journal of Reproduction and Fertility 37(2): 323-330



The present study revealed that LH is the physiological trigger needed for induction of ovulation in both rats and hamsters and that FSH cannot, by itself, induce ovulation in the total absence of LH.
