The intermittent reports concerning metabolic actions of neurohypophysial extracts or hormones encouraged us to study the effect of these substances on the function of the endocrine pancreas. A surprisingly small amount of neural lobe (NL) extract (0.025 NL eq/ml) stimulated a 425% increase in the release of glucagon from islets isolated from the pancreas of the rat. Gel filtration of the extract produced an elution profile of glucagon-releasing activity that was superimposable on the profiles… CONTINUE READING
