Mean ± SE of progesterone (a), testosterone (b) and estradiol (c) levels in the serum of rats with EV resulting from the blocking ovarian β-adrenergic receptors at 60-day old in oestrus day. The Vh- or EV-treated rats were injected with propranolol (Pro) [10− 4 M] in both ovarian bursas on oestrus day. Animals were sacrificed on the next oestrus day after surgery. ap < 0.05 vs Vh group bp < 0.05 vs. Vh + Pro group cp < 0.05 vs. EV group (one-way analysis of variance, followed by Tukey test)
