Inhibition of ovulation, steroidogenesis and collagenolytic activity in rabbits by sulpiride-induced hyperprolactinaemia

Journal of Reproduction and Fertility 83(2): 611-618
Inhibition of ovulation, steroidogenesis and collagenolytic activity in rabbits by sulpiride-induced hyperprolactinaemia
Ovulation induced by hCG in rabbits was reduced significantly (P < 0.005) by sulpiride-induced hyperprolactinaemia. The pre- and post-ovulatory increases in peripheral and ovarian venous progesterone (but not oestradiol or testosterone) were suppressed in the treated animals. The condition of hyperprolactinaemia also prevented the usual changes in 2,4-dinitrophenyl-Pro-Gln-Gly-Ile-Ala-Gly-Gln-D-Arg-OH peptidase (DNP-peptidase) and .alpha.-N-benzoyl-DL-Arg-.beta.-naphthylamide hydrolase (BANA-hydrolase) activities in follicular tissue that had been stimulated by an ovulatory dose of hCG. These results suggest that inhibition of progesterone production and collagenolytic enzyme activity by sulpiride-induced hyperprolactinameia may be responsible for the ovulatory dysfunction that occurs when a mammal has a high level of circulating prolactin.
