Ghrelin-induced growth hormone release from goldfish pituitary cells involves voltage-sensitive calcium channels.

Abstract

Ghrelin (GRL) is a stimulator of growth hormone (GH) release in many organisms, including goldfish. As a first study to examine the signalling mechanisms mediating GRL action on GH release in goldfish, we tested the hypothesis that GLR induces GH release from goldfish pituitary cells by enhancing Ca(2+) entry through L-type voltage-sensitive Ca(2+) channels… (More)
