Recently, ghrelin (Ghr), a new peptide which specifically stimulates growth hormone (GH) release from the pituitary, was identified in the rat and human stomach. Ghrelin has been shown to stimulate GH release by acting through a growth hormone secretagogue (GHS) receptor in the rat. The present study describes the in vitro effect of rat Ghr on the release of GH and two forms of prolactin (PRL(177) and PRL(188)) in the tilapia, Oreochromis mossambicus. Rat Ghr stimulated the release of GH in a… CONTINUE READING
