[Studies on the mechanism of alpha-MSH in reducing IL-1 beta-induced fever].


The effect of alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH) on IL-1 beta-induced fever and release of hypothalamic cAMP was observed in the present work. The results showed that alpha-MSH markedly suppressed febrile response (P < 0.05) and decreased the cAMP content in hypothalamus in response to icv injection of IL-1 beta (P < 0.01). The cAMP content of… (More)
