Changes in pituitary-adrenal function under continuous exposure to hypoxia in male rats.

Abstract

The plasma corticosterone concentration and incorporation of 14C-1-acetate into adrenocortical hormones were measured in male rats exposed to hypoxia (12.5% O2 in N2 balance) for periods of 30 min--14 days. Hypoxia significantly increased the weight of the adrenal and pituitary glands in early stages of exposure. However, weight returned to the control… (More)
