Abstract

Rabbit antiserum specific to ovine luteinizing hormone free of contaminating antibodies to nonspecific proteins and FSH was administered to adult, intact rats at a dose of 0.1 and 0.2 ml/day for five days. LHAS had no effect on the weights of the epididymis but decreased their secretory activity to castrate level. Administration of 0.2 ml of LHAS or castration resulted in a marked and comparable reduction in the weights and secretory activity of the accessory glands. LHAS, even at a lower dose (0.1 ml/day), caused a significant reduction in the content of sialic acid in the vas deferons and Cowper's glands. These results are discussed in relation to the factors that regulate the functions of the epididymis and accessory glands.
