The effects of linear (L) or cyclic (C) somatostatin (SRIF) on the release of growth hormone (GH) as measured both by bioassay and by radioimmunoassay (RIA) were studied in a series of incubation experiments with rat adenohypophyses. Although both forms of SRIF inhibited release of RIA-GH in all experiments, only C-SRIF appeared to inhibit release of… CONTINUE READING
