Control of the onset of puberty in the female rat: a possible role for pituitary somatomammotropic hormones

Control of the onset of puberty in the female rat: a possible role for pituitary somatomammotropic hormones

Dissertation Abstracts International, B 41(4): 1254-1255

Ovarian HCG receptor content and ovarian sensitivity to HCG increased gradually as female rats matured during the prepubertal period, with an abrupt increase in ovarian sensitivity on the days before 1st ovulation. The resulting increase in ovarian oestradiol release eventually triggered the 1st LH surge. In hyperprolactinaemic females , puberty occurred early, while prepubertal ovarian HCG receptor content increased and follicular maturation was hastened.
