The deoxyribonucleic acid polymerase activities and deoxyribonucleic acid contents of ovaries were measured to clarify the relationship between hormone-stimulated cell proliferation and the enzymes in ovaries of immature intact rats (4 to 29 days after birth) and hypophysectomized rats. The specific activity of deoxyribonucleic acid alpha-nucleotidyltransferase (the activity per microgram of deoxyribonucleic acid of the ovaries) drastically increased with an increase in the deoxyribonucleic acid content of the ovaries from 4 to 14 days after birth and then remained constant or slightly decreased after the increase, while the activity decreased gradually after hypophysectomy with no increase in the DNA content. Ovine follicle-stimulating hormone or estradiol-17 beta enhanced the deoxyribonucleic acid synthesis and alpha-nucleotidyltransferase activity in the ovaries of hypophysectomized rats, while deoxyribonucleic acid beta-nucleotidyltransferase activity showed no significant change. Ovine luteinizing hormone, progesterone, and testosterone caused no significant increases. These results suggest that follicle-stimulating hormone or estrogen causes the induction of deoxyribonucleic acid alpha-nucleotidyltransferase accompanied by deoxyribonucleic acid synthesis in cell proliferation in immature rat ovaries.
