Cloning and molecular characterization of complementary deoxyribonucleic acid corresponding to a novel form of pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide messenger ribonucleic acid in the rat testis.


Pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP), a neuropeptide that greatly stimulates adenylyl cyclase activity in cultured anterior pituitary cells, was isolated from ovine hypothalamus in 1989. Investigation of the distribution of PACAP messenger RNA (mRNA) in rat tissues by Northern blot analysis revealed an anomalous signal in the testis… (More)
