Table 3 Means ± s.e.m. of testosterone serum concentration in rats submitted to bilateral perforation of the peritoneum (PPB), castration (CAS) or adrenalectomy (ADXB) on Diestrus 1, Diestrus 2 or Proestrus performed at 13.00 h, and animals submitted to the same treatments which were injected with ATR at 12.00 Animals were sacrificed at 14.00 h.

From: The acute asymmetric effects of hemiovariectomy on testosterone secretion vary along the estrous cycle. The participation of the cholinergic system
