Abstract

A synthetic decapeptide, corresponding to the chemical structure of luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone from porcine hypothalami, was tested for the induction of ovulation in golden hamsters that had previously been treated with phenobarbital to prevent spontaneous ovulation. Subcutaneous injection of 0.089 to 0.357 nanomole of this synthetic luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone stimulated release of luteinizing hormone and induced ovulation.
