Neuropeptide-Y (NPY) is colocalized with vasopressin and oxytocin in magnocellular neurons of the hypothalamo-neurohypophysial system, and a very high density of NPY-binding sites is present within the neurohypophysis. To investigate the possibility that NPY exerts a modulatory role on the release of neurohypophysial hormones, we have studied the actions of(More)
The pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) peptide product alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH) has a variety of anti-inflammatory effects within the immune system. Using an antiserum specific for alpha-MSH, we have now demonstrated for the first time that this peptide is secreted from splenocytes. Basal secretion of alpha-MSH from the spleen in vitro was(More)
