Hypophysial responses to continuous and intermittent delivery of hypopthalamic gonadotropin-releasing hormone.
In rhesus monkeys with hypothalamic lesions that abolish gonadotropic hormone release by the pituitary gland, the constant infusion of exogenous gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) fails to restoreExpand

Salmonid pituitary gonadotrophs. I. Distinct cellular distributions of two gonadotropins, GTH I and GTH II.
Using antisera specific for the beta subunits of two distinct coho salmon gonadotropins, GTH I and GTH II, an immunocytochemical study of rainbow trout and Atlantic salmon pituitaries was done. CellsExpand

On the sites of the negative and positive feedback actions of estradiol in the control of gonadotropin secretion in the rhesus monkey.
Ovariectomized rhesus monkeys bearing hypothalamic lesions which had abolished endogenous LHRH production, as evidenced by a profound reduction in gonadotropin secretion, but in which LH and FSHExpand

Purification and characterization of a novel brain-specific 14-kDa protein.
A new acidic protein specifically present in the brain was purified to homogeneity from bovine brain. The apparent molecular mass was estimated to be 14 kDa by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamideExpand

Localization of phosphoneuroprotein 14 (PNP 14) and its mRNA expression in rat brain determined by immunocytochemistry and in situ hybridization.
Distribution and ultrastructural localization of a novel phosphoneuroprotein with a molecular mass of 14 kDa (PNP 14), and expression of its mRNA were studied in the adult rat central nervous systemExpand

Interleukin-6 stimulates the secretion of adrenocorticotropic hormone in conscious, freely-moving rats.
In order to assess the effect of interleukin-6 on the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis, we administered recombinant human interleukin-6 to conscious, freely-moving rats. The intravenous injectionExpand

PACAP protects hippocampal neurons against apoptosis: involvement of JNK/SAPK signaling pathway.
We have demonstrated that the ischemia-induced apoptosis of neurons in the CA1 region of the rat hippocampus was prevented by either intracerebroventricular or intravenous infusion of pituitaryExpand

Suppressive effect of dynorphin-(1-13) on luteinizing hormone release in conscious castrated rats.
The effect of intraventricular administration of dynorphin-(1-13) on luteinizing hormone (LH) release was studied in castrated conscious rats. The administration of 5 micrograms of dynorphin-(1-13)Expand

Immunocytochemical localization of nicotinic acetylcholine receptor in rat cerebral cortex.
Localization of nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) alpha 4 subunits was investigated in rat cerebral cortex using a monoclonal antibody against alpha 4 subunits. The antibody depleted more thanExpand

Immunocytochemical identification of the prolactin-secreting cells in the teleost pituitary with an antiserum to chum salmon prolactin.
An antiserum raised to highly purified chum salmon (Oncorhynchus keta) prolactin (sPRL) was used to identify prolactin-producing cells in the adenohypophysis of 15 species of teleosts by theExpand
