Regulation of growth hormone secretion by amino acid neurotransmitters in the goldfish (I): Inhibition by N-methyl-D, L-aspartic acid.

Abstract

High levels of the amino acid neurotransmitter glutamate were found in the goldfish hypothalamus and pituitary using high performance liquid chromatography with fluorometric detection. A specific polyclonal antibody to glutamate was generated in the rabbit for immunocytochemistry. Localization studies demonstrated that glutamatergic neurons of undetermined… (More)
