Effects of a chronic inflammatory stress on levels of pro-opiomelanocortin-derived peptides in the rat spleen and thymus.

Abstract

Adjuvant-induced arthritis (AA) in specific strains of rats is an immunologically mediated inflammatory disease which is also characterised by activation of the endocrine system. To further investigate the effects of AA on processing of the pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) precursor in rat immune tissues, we utilised radioimmunoassays for adrenocorticotrophin… (More)
