• Effect of leptin on LH and FSH release in ovariectomized rats 

      Shebl, M.M. (‎2002)‎
      We compared the estradiol/progesterone-induced luteinizing hormone [‎LH]‎ and follicle-stimulating hormone [‎FSH]‎ release between normally fed and leptin-supplemented starved ovariectomized female rats and studied also the effect of hyper-leptinaemia on the steroid-induced hormonal release in normally fed ovariectomized rats. Three days' starvation completely abolished steroid-induced LH and FSH release. Significant recovery of the hormonal release was shown in the leptin-supplemented starved group. The magnitudes of LH and FSH release in the normally ...
