The influence of sex and gonadectomy on the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis of the sheep


The influence of sex and gonadectomy on the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis of the sheep

The hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axes of intact and gonadectomized adult male and female sheep were compared at the level of the median eminence, pituitary and adrenal glands using a variety of in vitro approaches. The concentration of arginine vasopressin (AVP) was higher (P<0.01) in the median eminence of male than female sheep, and was increased by gonadectomy in both sexes (P<0.01).
