Hagfish, Myxine glutinosa, were used in an investigation of the possible effects of various eicosanoids and the prostaglandin synthetase inhibitor indomethacin, on cortisol production, blood pressure control, urine flow and electrolyte balance. Cortisol levels in plasma of untreated control animals and plasma from animals 1 h following injection of 50 micrograms kg-1 prostaglandin E1, E2, A2, F2 alpha TXB2 and indomethacin were not detectable. However, plasma cortisol levels rose to between 10… CONTINUE READING
