The effect of sustained stress on the plasma CRH level was studied in rats subjected to the stress of laparotomy conducted under ether anesthesia or water immersion-restraint. The role of AVP in ACTH secretion during such stress was also investigated. Concentrations of CRH and AVP in the hypothalamus, extrahypothalamic tissues and peripheral blood were(More)
We reported earlier that the plasma level of corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) remained high 120 min after the onset of such strong sustained stress as ether-laparotomy or water immersion-restraint, which reflected the persistent secretion of CRH from the hypothalamic median eminence (ME). We investigated the change in plasma CRH during water(More)
