Abstract

In the proestrous hamster the LH surge is usually initiated by 1500 h, preceding by one hour the increase in serum FSH (1, 2). Concomitant with the onset of the LH surge, an equally prompt and sustained rise in serum progesterone is observed (3). Previous experiments indicate that there is a causal relationship between LH and progesterone secretion (4).
