Dynamics of cortisol and endorphin responses to graded doses of synthetic ovine CRF in sheep.


Corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF), recently isolated from sheep hypothalami, has been shown to stimulate secretion of ACTH and beta-endorphin in vitro, and in vivo in rat and man. In previous reports, responses to ovine CRF were studied in heterologous bioassay systems where the ovine sequence was likely to act as a CRF analogue. We administered… (More)
