Biosynthesis and characterization of adrenocorticotropic hormone, alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone, and an NH2-terminal fragment of the adrenocorticotropic hormone/beta-lipotropin precursor from rat pars intermedia.


Isolated intermediate lobe cells from 40 rat pituitaries were incubated for 3 h with [35S]methionine + [3H]-phenylalanine, [35S]methionine, [3H]valine, and [3H]leucine. The cell extracts were purified by carboxymethyl-cellulose chromatography (CMC) and the fraction eluting with ovine adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) was further purified either by another… (More)
