The purpose of the present investigation was to examine the receptor specificity of dopamine inhibition of gonadotropin (GtH) and alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH) release from the goldfish (Carassius auratus) pituitary in vitro. Pars distalis (PD) and neurointermediate lobe (NIL) fragments of the goldfish pituitary were superfused in vitro(More)
Seasonal variations in the serum concentrations of gonadotropin (GtH) and the serum GtH response to intraperitoneal injection of domperidone, a specific dopamine receptor antagonist, were examined in goldfish. In addition, the effects of in vivo treatment of goldfish with a superactive analog of salmon gonadotropin-releasing hormone (sGnRH-A) and(More)
The gonadotropin secretory response of anterior pituitary cells to phorbol esters includes both extracellular Ca2(+)-dependent and -independent components (Stojilković et al, 1988; J. Biol. Chem. 263, 17301-17306, 1988). In cultured pituitary cells, measurements of [Ca2+]i using Fura-2 and of LH release during cell perifusion studies revealed that the(More)
