Intracerebroventricular administration of galanin (GAL) potently evoked growth hormone (GH) secretion in conscious male rats. Pretreatments with neostigmine and cysteamine blunted the GAL-induced GH secretion. Pretreatment of animals with a specific anti-somatostatin serum significantly inhibited the GAL-induced GH secretion. On the contrary, GH-releasing… CONTINUE READING
