Prolactin (PRL) cells in the rostral pars distalis of the tilapia Oreochromis mossambicus respond to somatostatin (SRIF) and reduced medium osmotic pressure within 10-20 min of exposure during perifusion incubation. Pieces of rostral pars distalis tissue were removed from freshwater-adapted tilapia and were preincubated in [3H]leucine in static culture (355 m phi smolal) for 48 hr. Following preincubation, they were placed in the perifusion apparatus and baseline release was established for 3… CONTINUE READING
