Endogenous opioid peptides are involved in the regulation of the HPA-axis function and stress response mechanism. However, there is a scarcity of data on opioid involvement in the regulation of the adrenocortical endocrine function. This study was performed to: 1) establish the expression of proenkephalin, POMC and prodynorphin genes in the porcine adrenal(More)
Oxytocin (OT) may be implicated in the modulation of hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA) at each level. In mature females the influence of OT on the HPA axis appeared to be dependent on ovarian steroid milieu and stress. In cyclic sows, the role of OT in the regulation of corticoid secretion is unknown. In the present study changes in plasma cortisol(More)
Galanin (GAL) is a 30-amino acid neuropeptide that is expressed in both the central and peripheral nervous system, including the enteric nervous system (ENS). Increased GAL concentrations have been identified in the blood of colorectal cancer (CRC) patients. The aim of the present study was to assess whether sections of the colon wall containing ENS(More)
Oxytocin (OT) is involved in the stimulation of secretion of anterior pituitary hormones in females during the periovulatory and periparturient periods. In the present study we examined the role of OT in control of ACTH, beta-endorphin, LH and PRL secretion in vitro from dispersed anterior pituitary cells collected from gilts during the luteal (Days 10-12;(More)
