Ovarian steroids influence the activity of neuroendocrine dopaminergic neurons.

Abstract

The secretion of prolactin (PRL) from the anterior lobe (AL) of the pituitary gland is tonically inhibited by dopamine (DA) of hypothalamic origin. While ovarian steroids play a role in the regulation of the secretion of PRL, their effect on all three populations of hypothalamic neuroendocrine dopaminergic neurons is not fully understood. In this study we… (More)
