The effect of glycine on serum luteinizing hormone in adult female rats

Experientia. 1978 Sep 15;34(9):1231-2. doi: 10.1007/BF01922976.


The response of serum luteinizing hormone to glycine has been studied during the estrous cycle in adult female rats. I.p. administration of 200 mg of glycine significantly elevated serum luteinizing hormone levels at all stages of the estrous cycle.
