Regulation of gonadotropin secretion in rams from birth to sexual maturity part 2 response of the pituitary testicular axis to luteinizing hormone releasing hormone infusion


Journal of Reproduction and Fertility 46(1): 7-11
Regulation of gonadotropin secretion in rams from birth to sexual maturity part 2 response of the pituitary testicular axis to luteinizing hormone releasing hormone infusion
The response of the pituitary-testicular axis to LH-RH [luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone] infusion was investigated in rams from birth to sexual maturity. During early postnatal life ram lambs were responsive to LH-RH stimulation and heightened pituitary sensitivity was observed in rams aged 2-3 mo. A change in sensitivity of the pituitary testicular axis may occur at this time and perhaps represents the time of initiation of the pubertal process.
