The autoregulation of testicular human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) binding sites was studied in two strains of mice known to differ in their endocrine and reproductive characteristics (C57BL/10J and DBA/2J), and in their F1 progeny (B10D2F1). Basal hCG binding levels were higher in C57BL/10J than in DBA/2J mice, while B10D2F1 mice had intermediate levels. Twenty-four h after injection, hCG produced dose-related changes in hCG binding in C57BL/10J and B10D2F1 mice not observed in DBA/2J mice. However, 72 h after treatment with hCG there was a decrease in hCG binding in all the strains studied. These results suggest the participation of genetic factors in determining basal levels, dose-related changes and temporal response of testicular hCG binding sites to hCG administration. Androgen receptor levels were measured in the same strains of mice. DBA/2J mice had higher receptor levels in the kidney and coagulating gland, and lower levels in the hypothalamus and seminal vesicle when compared to C57BL/10J mice. B10D2F1 mice had androgen receptor levels similar to those measured in C57BL/10J mice in all tissues studied, with the exception of the coagulating gland, where levels were similar to those observed in DBA/2J mice. These observations may indicate the existence of several loci coding for androgen receptors, with only one being expressed per tissue.
