Proestrous surge of gonadotropin-releasing hormone secretion inhibits apoptosis of anterior pituitary cells in cycling female rats



Proestrous surge of gonadotropin-releasing hormone secretion inhibits apoptosis of anterior pituitary cells in cycling female rats



Neuroendocrinology 76(5): 272-282



Oestrogen affects apoptotic cell death in oestrogen-responsive tissues. The purpose of the present study was to examine dynamic changes in apoptotic cell death in the anterior pituitary gland during the oestrous cycle and to investigate neuroendocrine regulation of these changes in cycling female rats.
