Effect of isoprenaline on the output of melatonin from fetal and newborn lamb pineal glands in vitro.


We have measured the output of melatonin in vitro from the pineal glands of lambs in late gestation (135-143 days) and the early newborn period (4-8 days). The basal output of melatonin/mg pineal tissue was significantly lower in the fetal group (16.3 +/- 3.9 pg melatonin.(30 min)-1.mg-1) than in the newborn group (148.1 +/- 43.6 pg melatonin.(30 min)-1.mg… (More)
