To further clarify the effect of insulin on the pituitary, the researchers compared the gonadotrophs of obese mice to those of lean mice by injecting the animals with gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH), which stimulates LH and is critical for ovulation and fertility.
By deleting the insulin receptors in the pituitary cells of mice, the researchers managed to restore normal LH levels, maintain ovulation and near-intact fertility even in obese mice with elevated insulin levels.
The experiment was carried out to determine the timing of ovulation and changes in peripheral plasma concentrations of progesterone, estrogen and LH in Murrah buffaloes (n = 10) treated with Heatsynch protocol whereas (n = 5) were non -cycling on the basis of progesterone analysis therefore not taken for experiment.
Parameters recorded were: (i) behavioral and secondary signs of estrus, (ii) periovulatory LH, total estrogen and progesterone profile and (iii) timing of ovulation in relation to EB treatment and to the preovulatory estrogen and LH surges.
