Differential effects of direct and indirectly acting cholinergic agonists on growth hormone release in man, and lack of effect on cortisol secretion.


Abstract Acetylcholine plays a key role in the modulation of growth hormone secretion. In fact, growth hormone release after provocative stimuli is blocked by muscarinic cholinergic antagonists, and conversely, indirect cholinergic agonists potentiate growth hormone secretion. To further understand the mechanism by which cholinergic pathways exert their… (More)
