Regulation of FSH secretion: use of hydroxyurea to deplete germinal epithelium.

PMID:  1116475     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Hydroxyurea, a chemotherapeutic agent that prevents mitosis by inhibiting DNA synthesis, was administered to adult male rats for 70 days. Plasma FSH and LH showed no systematic trend although severe germinal cell depletion was produced. These data suggest that the cell(s) of the seminiferous tubule involved in FSH regulation must be either the type A spermatogonium or the Sertoli cell.
