Peripheral Plasma Levels of Gonadal Steroids in Adult Male and Adult, Nonpregnant Female Mammals

  • H. H. Feder
Part of the Handbook of Behavioral Neurobiology book series (HBNE, volume 7)

Abstract

The introduction, about 20 years ago, of sensitive and specific assay methods has permitted the measurement of plasma androgens, estrogens, and progestins in the systemic circulation in representatives of all vertebrate classes. The present survey deals with such measurements in adult mammals. The survey begins with a review of the systemic levels of plasma androgens in males of various mammalian orders. The second section considers estrogen and progestin levels in adult, nonpregnant females. The third section deals with the value of plasma hormone measurements in neurobiological research.
