Short-term effects of ACTH on protein synthesis in adrenal cortex cells of young rats

Abstract

Two units of ACTH were administered intraperitoneally to young 20 gm-rats which received an intravenous injection of L-leucine-3H thirteen min later. ACTH-injected rats, and control rats which received the isotope alone, were killed at 2-, 10-, 30-and 60-min intervals. Electron microscope autoradiographs in control animals showed strong amino-acid uptake at… (More)
