The effect of thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH), TRH metabolites, and a TRH analog on the secretion of 35S-labeled sulfated polysaccharides from in vitro incubated foot integument of the pond snail Lymnaea stagnalis palustris was assessed. Whereas TRH significantly inhibited the secretion of 35S-labeled polysaccharides, its metabolite deamido TRH significantly stimulated polysaccharide secretion. Histidyl-proline-diketopiperazine did not alter the secretion of 35S-labeled sulfated… CONTINUE READING
