We examined the effects of removing extracellular Ca2+ (Ca2+e), depleting intracellular Ca2+ (Ca2+i), inhibiting Ca2(+)-dependent calmodulin, blocking voltage-sensitive Ca2+ channels, and combining Ca2+i depletion with exposure to glucocorticoid on the secretion of ACTH by perifused dispersed rat anterior pituitary cells stimulated with ovine CRF and 8-bromo-cAMP (8-Br-cAMP). A time-course analysis of the effect of perifusing the cells for 60 min with Ca2(+)-free medium on 10 nM CRF-stimulated… CONTINUE READING
