Abstract

Treatments with benzpyrene on the 15th, 17th and 19th day of the pregnancy result in sexually significantly less active offspring females followng castration and treatments with sexual hormones in adulthood. The receptivity of animals treated with allylestrenol in embryonic period is also decreased but was not significant. Treatments with allylestrenol or benzpyrene of newborns did not alter the hormone-induced sexual behaviour. Comparing without previous experiments it seems that the effect of benzpyrene - which is structurally more distinct however it binds to the steroid receptor - is more pronounced on the sexual behaviour than allylestrenol.
