Dopaminergic agents selectively alter the post-translational processing of beta-endorphin in the intermediate pituitary of the rat.

Abstract

The present study examines whether sustained changes in the biosynthetic activity of the intermediate pituitary, induced pharmacologically by treating rats with dopamine receptor ligands, alters the post-translational processing of beta-endorphin (beta-END). Separation of the individual molecular forms of beta-END using ion exchange chromatography revealed… (More)
