The effects of several chemical and enzymatic treatments on the biological activity of highly purified porcine luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LH-RH) and follicle-stimulating hormone-releasing hormone (FSH-RH) (1) were studied in an attempt to define the chemical nature of these hypothalamic hormones. The results obtained are consistent with the concept that LH-RH/FSH-RH activity is due to small basic polypeptide(s), but a conclusive differentiation between LH-RH and FSH-RH cannot yet be made.
