Previous work of others and ours has shown that corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) is a positive stimulus for thyroid and interrenal hormone secretion in amphibian larvae and that activation of CRH neurons may mediate environmental effects on the timing of metamorphosis. These studies have investigated CRH actions in anurans (frogs and toads), whereas there is currently no information regarding the actions of CRH on metamorphosis of urodeles (salamanders and newts). We tested the hypothesis… CONTINUE READING
