Intraventricular administration of estradiol modulates rat prolactin secretion and synthesis.

Abstract

The effect of estradiol (E2) on rat tuberoinfundibular dopaminergic (TIDA) neurons was examined in vivo, employing chronic intraventricular (i.c.v.) infusion technique using an osmotic mini-pump. The activity of TIDA neurons was assessed by the release and synthesis of prolactin (PRL) in the rat pituitary gland and by the changes in the 3, 4… (More)
