6,7-Dihydroxy-2-dimethylaminotetralin (TL-99) mimicks the ability of dopamine either to enhance adenylate cyclase activity in homogenates of goldfish retina or to inhibit adenylate cyclase activity in homogenates of the intermediate lobe (IL) of the rat pituitary gland previously treated with cholera toxin. Both the dopamine stimulated adenylate cyclase(More)
Treatment of rats with 2-Br-alpha-ergocryptine (bromocriptine; CB 154) elicits biochemical, physiological, and histological changes in the intermediate lobe (IL) of the rat pituitary gland, suggesting a decrease in activity in the IL. CB 154 treatment decreases 1) the capacity of the IL to synthesize proopiomelanocortin (POMC), 2) the content of mRNA(More)
A cAMP-dependent protein kinase occurs in the intermediate lobe of the rat pituitary gland and the ACTH-secreting tumor AtT-20/D16-16 derived from the mouse pituitary gland. Exposure of either tissue to drugs increasing cAMP production and hormone release (forskolin, cholera toxin, or isoproterenol in the case of the intermediate lobe; forskolin or(More)
Clinicopathological studies were performed on the visceral organs and the sural nerve of a male patient with Churg-Strauss syndrome (CSS) in order to understand the mechanisms of peripheral nervous system damage. A 67-year-old man, with a 2-year history of bronchial asthma, developed acutely painful paraplegia and dyspnea. Laboratory data showed a(More)
Forskolin stimulates adenylate cyclase activity in a cell-free homogenate of the intermediate lobe (IL) of the rat pituitary gland. L-Isoproterenol, a beta-adrenergic agonist, enhances and apomorphine, a D-2 agonist, inhibits the forskolin-stimulated adenylate cyclase activity. Guanosine triphosphate is obligatory for the dopaminergic attenuation of the(More)
Bromocriptine (CB 154), a potent agonist upon the D-2 receptor, blocks the proliferation of the mammotrophs and the elevation of serum prolactin concentration induced by chronic exposure of male Fisher 344 rats to diethylstilbestrol (DES). Fluphenazine, a dopamine receptor antagonist, blocks these effects of CB 154. We conclude that a D-2 receptor occurs on(More)
A D-2 dopamine receptor and a ?(2)-adrenoceptor occur in the intermediate lobe of the rat pituitary gland (IL). Exposure of intact IL tissue to a D-2 agonist diminished the ability of dopaminergic agonists [but not 5?-guanylyl imidodiphosphate (Gpp(NH)p)] to inhibit adenylate cyclase activity. Conversely, exposure of intact IL tissue to a ?-adrenergic(More)
An electron microscopic study was performed to clarify the effects of tunicamycin, a glycosylation inhibitor, on rat anterior pituitary cells. Tunicamycin (10, 50, and 100 micrograms/250 g B.W.) was intraperitoneally injected into rats, which were sacrificed 24 hrs later. Protein hormone producing GH and prolactin cells, and ACTH cells which are known to(More)
