Compensatory reactions of the endocrine system in goats with disturbed balance of sexual hormones

, : Compensatory reactions of the endocrine system in goats with disturbed balance of sexual hormones. Trudy Vsesoyuznogo Sel' skokhozyaistvennogo Instituta Zaochnogo Obrazovaniya (51): 59-62

3 male kids castrated at 2 months and 1 female kid ovariectomized at the same age were given udder massage twice daily (5 min/teat) for about 12 months. All the test animals showed significant increases in the length of teats, whereas control animals (1 castrated and 2 non-castrated kids which were not massaged) did not. The left teat of the ovariectomized kid (which was not massaged) was 30% shorter than her right teat, and also shorter than the teats of the castrated male test animals.

Hypothalamus is a site of integration of the hypoxic and thermal stimuli on breathing and there is evidence that serotonin (5-HT) receptors in the anteroventral preoptic region (AVPO) mediate hypoxic hypothermia. Once 5-HT is involved in the hypox...
