Table 4 Means ± SEM of estradiol serum levels in sham operated and ULO rats treated at 28 or 32 days of age, sacrificed the day of first vaginal estrous.

From: Ipsilateral vagotomy to unilaterally ovariectomized pre-pubertal rats modifies compensatory ovarian responses

Group N Age of treatment In situ ovary Estradiol (pg/ml)
Sham 13 28 days both 7.9 ± 0.8
ULO 10 28 days left 10.3 ± 1.0
ULO 13 28 days right 8.4 ± 0.4
Sham 8 32 days both 14.7 ± 1.4
ULO 9 32 days left 13.9 ± 1.2*
ULO 16 32 days right 18.7 ± 1.7*
  1. *p < 0.05 vs. rats treated at 28-days of age (Student's t test); p < 0.05 vs. rats with left ovary in situ, same age of treatment (Student's t test).
