Isolation and Preliminary Characterization of Inhibin-f
Although a gonadal regulation of hypophysial gonadotrophin secretion is established, the nature of this feedback is not fully known. In certain pathological conditions (1) or after selective destruction of the germinal epithelium (2), FSH levels are elevated whereas LH levels are not. These observations suggest that the secretion of FSH is under the control of a factor other than that controlling LH secretion (2). Recent evidence in the female (3) also supports the concept of the dissociation of secretion of FSH and LH.
