  • The pineal indole melatonin suppresses the neonatal rat luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) responses to LH-releasing hormone (LHRH), as shown in previous studies from this laboratory. We show in this study that the melatonin inhibition is a selective effect and is not due to general inhibition of pituitary function. The effects of the indole on the responses to thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) and somatostatin (SRIF) and on basal pituitary hormone secretion were… CONTINUE READING
