Calcium and calmodulin mediation of growth hormone-releasing hormone release from the rat hypothalamus in vitro.

Abstract:

A major role for Ca2+ and calmodulin in stimulus-secretion coupling has been suggested for several neuropeptides; however, the cellular mechanisms of GH-releasing hormone (GHRH) release have been little investigated so far. We have used a previously validated acute rat hypothalamic explant system in order to elucidate whether Ca2+ acts as a second messenger in the regulation of GHRH release, and whether calmodulin-dependent pathways are involved. Calcium dependence of somatostatin (SRIH) rele...
