Constant light blocks diurnal but not pulsatile release of luteinizing hormone in the ovariectomized rat.

Abstract:

We have investigated the effects of constant light on the patterns of LH release in long-term ovariectomized rats. Some animals were implanted with a silicone elastomer capsule containing oestradiol-17 beta. Plasma samples in anaesthetized animals were taken from the external jugular vein and in conscious animals from an indwelling intra-atrial catheter. The pulsatile release of LH that occurred in animals not treated with oestrogen was unaffected by constant light or the steroid anaesthetic ...
