Young specimens of Xenopus laevis were kept under constant environmental conditions (artifical light from 600 to 1800 hr, feeding between 800 and 900 hr) and the concentrations of aldosterone and corticosterone in the serum were measured every 3 hr. Furthermore, the kidneys containing the interrenals were removed and their corticosteroid release under(More)
The stimulation of corticosteroid release by the interrenal tissue of Xenopus laevis was investigated using an in vitro preparation of the interrenals and a radioimmunoassay for determinations of corticosterone and aldosterone in the perifusate. The stimulatory activity of four different areas was tested, the pars distalis, the post- and preoptic(More)
