The posterior pituitary contains a polypeptide of less than 5 kD which stimulates PRL secretion from perfused anterior pituitary cells in the presence of physiological concentrations of dopamine (Hyde and Ben-Jonathan, 1988). , 1987). Greef et al. (1987) believe thyrotropin releasing hormone (a tripeptide), not serotonin, is the releasing agent.

4 Melanocyte Stimulating Hormone (Melanotropin, MSH) The concentration of MSH rises and falls during the estrus cycle in patterns similar to those of LH, FSH and PRL (Tomatis and Taleisnik, 1969; Celis, 1975). In rats the hormone may act in synergism with LH and/or progesterone to induce ovulation (AIde and Celis, 1980) or may potentiate the effect of fJ-endorphin in inhibiting LH secretion (Khorram and McCann, 1986). , 1985). 1 Males The testes are paired structures formed of about 30 coiled seminiferous tubules and interstitial tissue formed of connective tissue and interstitial (Leydig) cells.

1986) state that LH appears in blood within two minutes. Rapid fluctuation of hormone levels in blood does not present a danger that the endocrine tissue could become depleted. The concentration of hormones in the respective endocrine glands usually surpasses manyfold the quantity released. It has been estimated that in the rat less than 5% of the available GnRH is released during each episode. The amount released is in excess of the physiological need. Kalra et al. (1971) approximate that only about 15% of LH released during a preovulatory surge is needed for ovulation.
