Somatostatin (SRIF) analogs interacting with SRIF receptor (SSTR) subtypes SSTR2 and SSTR5 reduce hormone secretion of pituitary adenomas, but their antiproliferative effects are still controversial.(More)
This study was designed to investigate the effect of dermorphin (D), a new synthetic potent opiate-like peptide (H-Tyr-D-Ala-Phe-Gly-Tyr-Pro-Ser-NH2), on PRA, plasma aldosterone (PA), plasma cortisol(More)
Dopamine (DA) and somatostatin (SRIF) receptor agonists inhibit growth hormone (GH) secretion by pituitary adenomas. We investigated DA subtype 2 receptor (DR2) and SRIF receptor (sst) subtypes 2 and(More)
Testosterone (T) is known to affect the growth hormone (GH) axis. However, the mechanisms underlying the activation of GH secretion by T still remain to be clarified. Available data in animals and(More)
