Adrenomedullin (AM) has been reported to have actions at each level of the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, suggesting that the peptide plays a role in the organization of the neuroendocrine responses to stress. We examined the mechanism by which AM regulates the central nervous system branch of the HPA axis as well as the possible role of AM in the modulation of the releases of two other hormones, prolactin and GH, whose secretions also are altered by stress.
