Abstract

The purpose of the present study was to determine whether nonsteroidal antiestrogens could act as estrogens by inducing or facilitating estrogen-induced sexual receptivity in a female lizard (Anolis carolinensis). Experiments were conducted to (1) test the ability of enclomiphene (ENC) and zuclomiphene (ZUC) to induce sexual receptivity in estrogen-untreated ovariectomized females; (2) to determine the effect of ENC and ZUC pretreatment on E2B induction of sexual receptivity; and (3) to examine the ability of a variety of antiestrogens to act as estrogens by inducing sexual receptivity in females pretreated with a behaviorally ineffective estrogen treatment regimen.
