BACKGROUND To investigate the function and mechanism of fasting on the production of corticosterone in vitro by zona fasciculata-reticularis (ZFR) cells from ovariectomized (OVX) rats. METHODS Female rats were OVX for 4 days before decapitation. Rats were fed or fasted for 1 day before experiment. ZFR cells from fed and fasted rats were incubated with adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), forskolin, 8-bromo-3',5'-cyclic adenosine monophosphate, SQ22536, nifedipine, chelerythrine chloride… CONTINUE READING
