Abstract

Repeated amputation of the lower incisors in rats during early postnatal development induces enlargement of the salivary glands and hypertrophy of the testes, accompanied by their more rapid differentiation. Testicular hypertrophy following this procedure is much more marked (76%) than after unilateral castration at the same age. Although repeated amputation of the lower incisors in adult animals is followed by hypertrophy of the salivary glands, it does not cause hypertrophy of the testes.

Key Words
