Effect of adrenalectomy on mating-induced prolactin surges and pseudopregnancy in the female rat


Effect of adrenalectomy on mating-induced prolactin surges and pseudopregnancy in the female rat

In the estrous female rat, mating stimulation induces an acute surge of prolactin (PRL) within 20 min after mating followed by the onset of twice-daily PRL surges which persist for an 8- to 13-day period of acyclicity called pseudopregnancy. In Experiment 1, we examined whether the release of adrenal hormones after mating modulates mating-induced PRL secretion during the first 38 h after mating.
