The effect of pinealectomy on the circadian periodicity in serum gonadotropins was investigated in adult male rats. Pinealectomy resulted in an elevation of the serum FSH concentration 7 days after the operation. A 4-fold increase in serum FSH over 24 h with no concommitant increase in serum LH following pinealectomy suggests that the control of FSH secretion could be mediated via the pineal gland.
