In vivo biosynthesis of melanotropins and related peptides in the pars intermedia of Xenopus laevis.


To study in vivo biosynthesis of pars intermedia peptides in Xenopus laevis, [3H]lysine was administered by an osmotic minipump via a cannula inserted near the pituitary gland. Following extraction of the neurointermediate lobe, high-performance liquid chromatography was used to separate the newly synthesized peptides. In black-background adapted animals… (More)
