Localization, secretion, and action of inhibin in human placenta.
Inhibin is a gonadal glycoprotein hormone that regulates the production of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) by the anterior pituitary gland and exhibits intragonadal actions as well. The presentExpand

A pituitary tumor producing high molecular weight adrenocorticotropin-related peptides: clinical and cell culture studies.
The tissue-specific processing of proopiomelanocortin (POMC), the precursor of ACTH, beta-endorphin, and their related peptides, is currently of considerable interest. We report a patient with aExpand

Secretion of corticotropin-releasing factor from cultured rat hypothalamic cells: effects of catecholamines.
An understanding of the regulation of CRF secretion in rats is currently incomplete, in part due to the lack of sensitive in vitro models available for studying this neuropeptide. In particular, theExpand

Atrial natriuretic peptide is a physiological inhibitor of ACTH release: evidence from immunoneutralization in vivo.
The brain is thought to exert a predominantly stimulatory action on ACTH secretion mediated mainly by corticotrophin-releasing factor-41 (CRF-41) and arginine vasopressin (AVP). Several data,Expand

Postoperative pain control: Contribution of psychological factors and transcutaneous electrical stimulation
Abstract The influence of transcutaneous electrical stimulation (TES) and psychological factors in determining the intensity of acute postoperative pain was examined in a prospective, double‐blindExpand

Ovarian immunoreactive beta-endorphin and estrous cycle in the rat.
Adult female Sprague-Dawley rats were killed at different stages of a 4-day estrous cycle, and ovaries and anterior pituitaries examined for content of immunoreactive beta-endorphin by RIA and forExpand

Immunoreactive beta-endorphin in a subpopulation of mouse spleen macrophages.
Using radioimmunoassay and immunofluorescence with antibodies to beta-endorphin (beta EP) and ACTH, we have shown that a subpopulation of mouse spleen cells, expressing Mac-1, a marker of macrophageExpand

Ovarian immunoreactive β-endorphin and estrous cycle in the rat
Adult female Sprague-Dawley rats were killed at different stages of a 4-day estrous cycle, and ovaries and anterior pituitaries examined for content of immunoreactive beta-endorphin by RIA and forExpand

Adenosine 3',5'-monophosphate, prostaglandins, and epinephrine stimulate the secretion of immunoreactive gonadotropin-releasing hormone from cultured human placental cells.
Cell culture and biochemical procedures were used to identify and study the possible mechanisms regulating the secretion of GnRH-like immunoreactivity (GnRH-LI) from human placenta. Monolayer primaryExpand

An outbreak of cutaneous aspergillosis in a tertiary-care hospital.
A cluster of four cases of surgical and burn wound aspergillosis occurred in a 900-bed, adult, tertiary-care hospital. The source was traced to the outside packages of dressing supplies, which hadExpand
