Melatonin was shown to occur in rat plasma and urine after pinealectomy by bioassay, radioimmunoassay, and thin-layer chromatography. Total daily excretion of melatonin in pinealectomized rats was about 20% of control. Light-dark rhythms of plasma melatonin levels and urinary excretion rates disappeared after pinealectomy.
