Differential plasma beta-endorphin, beta-lipotropin, and adrenocorticotropin responses to stress in rats.


This study was designed to compare the amounts of ACTH, beta-endorphin (beta END), and beta-lipotropin (beta LPH) that are present in plasma under basal conditions and after single and repeated administration of a discrete 2-min restraint stress both in intact and in chronically adrenalectomized rats.
