Abstract: 

Background: Nitric oxide is involved in numerous biological processes as a neurotransmiter, and neuromodulator. So far different activity is attributive to its presence. Goal of present study is the assessment of androgenic steroide activity on the level of NO serum concentration and its interrelation with the animals anxiety.
Materials and Methods: Due to 4 stages of sexual cycles, 40 female rats were selected and randomized to 4 group. The members in each group were subjected to vaginal smear, and estrous cycles stage determination. Blood samples were derived to determine the relation of anxiety to the nitrate and nitrite concentration of serum.
Results & Conclusion: The results of the study are an indication that the anxiety during the length of experiment is under the influence of androgenic steroid activity, and nitric oxide plays a crucial role in this respect.
