Treatment with hCG increases Leydig cell number in hpg, hpg.SCARKO and hpg.ARKO mice. Adult mice were treated daily with 4 IU of hCG (or vehicle) for 1 week and Leydig cell number counted using the optical disector method. Results show the mean ± SEM of between 3 and 5 animals per group. Groups with different letter superscripts are significantly (P < 0.05) different. Primary raw data are shown in Additional file 1
