SUMMARY

Intact mature virgin female mice of the CHI strain treated with ACTH showed no change in total mammary gland area or in the degree of branching of the mammary duct systems. Their ovaries were larger than those of control mice. Similar mice treated with ACTH in a further experiment showed more large corpora lutea in the ovaries than did control mice.
