From: A mathematical model for LH release in response to continuous and pulsatile exposure of gonadotrophs to GnRH

Figure 16

Model responses to six minutes pulses of 10 nM GnRH every 30 minutes with the standard parameters (crosses), with v1 changed from 0.02/min to 0.005/min (stars) or to 0.05/min (open circles). The weak desensitization (stars) is similar to that of the rat in the experiments of Baird et al.[22](our Figure 5A) and the strong desensitization (open circles) is similar to that seen in the hamster (our Figure 5B).
