CORTISOL CONCENTRATIONS IN MALE ALASKAN MOOSE (ALCES A. GIGAS) AFTER EXOGENOUS ACTH ADMINISTRATION
Blood levels of cortisol were determined in five yearling Alaskan moose after and exogenous administration of 40 I.U. of ACTH. A rapid elevation of cortisol concentration (over 15μg/100 mL) within 60 min. of ACTH injection demonstrated an unexpectedly high level of adrenocortical response to a simulated stress. The results in moose are compared to several other deer species.
