Differential effects of cryptorchidism and short photoperiod on testicular prolactin and LH/human chorionic gonadotrophin receptors in the golden hamster



Differential effects of cryptorchidism and short photoperiod on testicular prolactin and LH/human chorionic gonadotrophin receptors in the golden hamster



Journal of Endocrinology 103(2): 227-231



Experimental induction of cryptorchidism in hamsters produced a decrease in testicular weight and an increase in plasma FSH concentration, without altering the plasma concentrations of LH or prolactin, and with a relatively small decrease in plasma testosterone. It also produced an increase in the concentrations of prolactin and LH/HCG receptors without causing significant changes in their total content.
