Abstract

The influence of intraperitoneally administered melatonin on ovulation and the plasma content of luteinizing hormone in pregnant mare's serum (PMS) treated immature rats was tested. Melatonin, administered in three equivalent doses of 500 μg each at 2:00, 3:00 and 4:00 P. M. on the second day after PMS administration, reduced the number of rats that ovulated. Melatonin also prevented the rise in plasma luteinizing hormone which occurred in the majority of the control animals at 57 hours after PMS administration.
