Besides sleep-promoting properties, delta-sleep-inducing peptide (DSIP) has been reported to act as a corticotropin-releasing inhibiting factor in vitro and in vivo. We examined, first, the influence of DSIP on ACTH and cortisol release following stimulation with human corticotropin-releasing hormone (h-CRH; 1.0 microgram/kg body weight, and 0.5 microgram… (More)
