The possible existence of extrapituitary melanocyte stimulating hormone (MSH) in various regions of the rat brain has been studied in intact and hypophysectomized rats. Using a sensitive and specific radioimmunoassay (RIA), alphaMSH has been found in a number of brain regions in intact rats. The standard curves of synthetic alphaMSH and the dilution curves for pars intermedia nervosa (PIN), pars distalis (PD), hypothalamus and thalamus extracts were strictly parallel. The alphaMSH… CONTINUE READING
