Vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) stimulates androstenedione release in isolated perfused pig adrenals.

Abstract

The effect of the vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) on adrenal androstenedione release was investigated in isolated perfused pig adrenals. Our system allowed a direct comparison with the effect of ACTH, gonadotropins and proopiomelanocortin 79-96, which has been suggested to be the specific cortical androgen stimulating hormone (CASH).
