Effects of pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide on hormone secretion by human pituitary adenomas in vitro.

Abstract

Hormone release in culture in response to pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP) was examined in 28 human pituitary adenomas: 10 null cell adenomas, 4 gonadotropin-, 6 GH-, 6 ACTH-, and 2 PRL-producing adenomas. The effects of PACAP38 were compared with those of the classical hypothalamic releasing hormones and other activators of… (More)
