Pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide stimulates steroidogenesis and adenosine 3',5'-monophosphate accumulation in cultured rat granulosa cells.

Abstract

Pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP) is a novel neuropeptide with considerable homology to vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) and GH-releasing hormone (GHRH). Because we have shown previously that VIP and GHRH stimulate steroidogenesis in cultured rat granulosa cells independently of FSH, the present studies evaluated whether PACAP… (More)
