Direct effect of hypothalamic neuropeptides on the release of catecholamines by adrenal medulla in sheep - study ex vivo.


Stress causes the activation of both the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenocortical axis and sympatho-adrenal system, thus leading to the release from the adrenal medulla of catecholamines: adrenaline and, to a lesser degree, noradrenaline. It has been established that in addition to catecholamines, the adrenomedullary cells produce a variety of neuropeptides… (More)
