In vitro potentiation of the activity of synthetic ovine corticotropin-releasing factor by arginine vasopressin.

Abstract

The ability of arginine vasopressin (AVP) to potentiate the actions of synthetic ovine corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) was examined using anterior pituitary fragments. Marked potentiation of ACTH release was observed upon incubating the fragments with a combination of 2 nM AVP and 1 nM CRF. Potentiation of CRF-induced ACTH release was also observed… (More)
