Neuropeptide-Y stimulates CRF-41 release from rat hypothalami in vitro.
There is increasing evidence that neuropeptide-Y (NPY) exerts a stimulatory effect on the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis. Although it has been suggested that this stimulatory effect may be mediated via an action on hypothalamic CRF-41 release, direct measurements have not previously been made. In this study, the direct effect of NPY on hypothalamic CRF-41 secretion has been investigated in vitro using acute hypothalamic explants and previously described incubation techniques. NPY in the c...Expand abstract
