In vitro, nitric oxide (NO) stimulates LH secretion and partially prevents the inhibitory effect of dopamine on PRL release.

Abstract

In recent years nitric oxide (NO) has emerged as an important intra- and intercellular transmitter involved in the control of hypothalamic-pituitary axis. In order to discriminate the potential actions of NO at hypothalamic or pituitary level in the control of PRL and LH release, we have studied PRL and LH secretion by dispersed pituitary cells obtained… (More)
