Effect of gonadectomy and sex steroid replacement on body weights and seminal vesicle weights in adolescent male rats.(A) There were no significant differences in overall growth between any of the five experimental groups (F=2.09, df=4, 221, p > 0.05). (B) Seminal vesicles weighed less following gonadectomy (n=16) compared with Intact rats (n=15) and this effect was completely prevented by T replacement (n=17), partly prevented by DHT (n=14) but unchanged by E (n=15). * denote comparisons with Intact, # denote comparisons with Gdx, ### and ***=p < 0.0001.
