Opiate receptors influence vasopressin release from nerve terminals in rat neurohypophysis.

Abstract:

A previous report described the existence of substantial amounts of enkephalin immunoreactivity and the occurrence of nerve terminals containing an enkephalin-like material in the pars nervosa of rat pituitary. It was suggested that an enkephalin innervation of the pars nervosa originating from the magnocellular hypothalamic nuclei might regulate the secretion of neurohypophyseal hormones. The results of the present studies support this hypothesis, as we find that a stable enkephalin analogue...
