Table 3 Effects of LHRH or EB on the weight of the in situ ovary in rats with unilateral ovariectomy (ULO) performed at 13:00 h of diestrus-2 day

From: The participation of the muscarinic receptors in the preoptic-anterior hypothalamic areas in the regulation of ovulation depends on the ovary

Group Weight of the in situ ovary (mg/100 g bw)
Left Right
L-ULO 32.7 ± 3.3
L-ULO + LHRH 17.4 ± 1.1a
L-ULO + EB 19.6 ± 1.2a
R-ULO 33.4 ± 3.6
R-ULO + LHRH 19.7 ± 1.5a
R-ULO + EB 18.0 ± 1.3a
  1. The mean ± SEMs of the weight of the left or right ovary of intact rats, or rats subject to left ULO (L-ULO) or right ULO (R-ULO), and ULO rats injected with 3.7 μg/Kg body weight of synthetic LHRH at 14:00 h of the predicted proestrus day, or injected with 10 μg of EB at 14:00 h of the same day of the ULO. The animals were sacrificed at the predicted estrous day
  2. a p < 0.01 vs. the respective ULO group (MANOVA, followed Tukey test)
