Inhibition of growth hormone synthesis by somatostatin in cultured pituitary of rainbow trout

Abstract

When the pituitary of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) was incubated in a serum-free medium, a high level of growth hormone release as well as an activation of growth hormone synthesis were observed, suggesting the existence of hypothalamic inhibitory factor(s) on growth hormone synthesis. Although an inhibitory effect of somatostatin on growth hormone… (More)
