Differentiation of hypophysiotropic neurones that regulate the secretion of growth hormone (GH) and prolactin is influenced by GH and prolactin. Genetic GH and prolactin deficiency in mutant rodent models such as the Ames dwarf (df/df) mouse results in an increase in the number of GH-stimulatory GH-releasing hormone (GHRH) neurones and a reduction of prolactin-inhibitory tuberoinfundibular dopaminergic (TIDA) neurones in the arcuate nucleus during postnatal development. The present study tested… CONTINUE READING
