Neuromedin-B shows a widespread distribution throughout mammalian neural and peripheral tissues and may be involved in the modulation of a variety of physiological processes. The highest concentrations of neuromedin-B are found in the anterior pituitary gland, suggesting that it may be of physiological importance within this tissue. To examine this hypothesis, we have used Northern blotting to demonstrate that neuromedin-B is present in the anterior pituitary as a result of local synthesis and… CONTINUE READING
