Thymulin is a Zn-bound nonapeptide produced by the thymic epithelial cells (TEC) whose secretion is modulated by prolactin (PRL) and thyroid hormones, among other hormones. We assessed the ability of thymulin to influence the release of PRL and thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) from dispersed anterior pituitary (AP) cells from young, middle-aged and senescent Sprague-Dawley female rats. Perifused and incubated AP cells were used in different sets of experiments and PRL and TSH release was… CONTINUE READING
