Abstract

β-Endorphin and related peptides have been detected within the male rat reproductive system. The β-endorphin immunoreactivity of testis exhibits parallelism with synthetic human β-endorphin on serial dilution and coelutes with β-endorphin on Sephadex G-50 and reverse phase high pressure liquid chromatography. Sephadex G-50 chromatography also indicates the presence of β-lipotropin. β-Endorphin concentrations in rat seminal vesicles and prostate were approximately 25% of that in testis.
