We demonstrated previously that hypoxia activated CRF and CRF mRNA in PVN, and CRF receptor 1 (CRFR1) mRNA in rat pituitary. The aim of the study is to test whether the hypoxia-activated CRF and CRF mRNA is associated with triggering CRFR1. Rats were exposed to hypobaric hypoxia at altitude of 2 and 5 km. CRF and CRF mRNA were assayed by immunostaining and(More)
We have reported that, in rats, hypoxia (10.8% O2) stimulates prolactin (PRL) release from the pituitary. This study is designed to compare the response of pituitary PRL to acute hypoxia (AH), continual hypoxia (CH), intermittent hypoxia (IH), cold, and restraint, individually and combined with hypoxia. This study also investigates the involvement of the(More)
