Blinding 2 or 3 day old rats decreased uterine weights when animals were killed at 75 days of age; the effect of blinding was counteracted by pinealectomy. TP-treatment at 3 days of age reduced ovarian, but not uterine, size at 75 days of age. This decrease was not prevented by pinealectomy. The combination of blinding and TP-treatment caused marked reductions in the size of both the ovaries and uteri; if these rats were pinealectomized the ovaries and uteri returned to the levels of similar organs in TP-treated animals.
