Different mechanisms controlling FSH and LH release in Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica): evidence for an inherently spontaneous release and production of FSH



Different mechanisms controlling FSH and LH release in Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica): evidence for an inherently spontaneous release and production of FSH



Journal of Endocrinology 108(2): 239-245



Plasma concentrations of FSH and LH and their contents in the pituitary of Japanese quail were estimated by homolgous radioimmunoassays based on fowl hormones. The results consistently showed that the plasma concentration of FSH was slightly higher than that of LH, although the FSH content in the pituitary was much lower than that of LH in immature, mature and acutely photostimulated quail. These results prompted experiments in vitro to determine whether the difference was intrinsic.
