The corticotropes in the anterior pituitary
stop further secretion of ACTH until the concentration of cortisol in the blood drops.
Dexamethasone increases growth hormone (GH)-releasing hormone (GRH) receptor mRNA levels in cultured rat anterior pituitary
At least half the patients with CDI also demonstrate anterior pituitary
hormone deficiency at a later stage of their disease (13).
1976), Weniger (1978), Findley and Jacobs (1980), Bonato (1982) and Durand (1986) had reported that Lithospermum rudeale inhibited LH release without acting on anterior pituitary
The multiple endocrine neoplasia Type 1 (MEN-1) syndrome is characterized by the occurrence of parathyroid, endocrine pancreatic, and anterior pituitary
tumors, and, to a lesser extent, other endocrine tumors (eg, carcinoid or adrenal tumors) in a single patient or in a familial context.
Prolactin (PRL) is a 23-kDa protein hormone secreted mainly by the lactotrophs in the anterior pituitary
gland and also at low concentrations by several other tissues (1).
The clinical effects of chaste tree berry appear to derive from dcpaminergic effects on the anterior pituitary
, where it binds to dopamine-2 ([D.
MEN 1, also known as Wermer's syndrome, is characterized by tumors of the parathyroids, pancreatic islet cells, and the anterior pituitary
chaste tree berry extract exerts dopaminergic effects on the anterior pituitary
, decreasing prolactin levels and increasing progesterone levels.
Prolactin, a hormone secreted by the anterior pituitary
gland, should also be measured because hyperprolactinemia serves as a marker for the loss of hypothalamic dopamine secretion or interruption in the hypothalamic-pituitary portal system.
Somatuline([R]) was initially developed and continues to be used mainly in the treatment of acromegaly, a disorder caused by the overproduction of growth hormone or prolactin due to a benign tumour of the anterior pituitary
We also found that leptin expression was up-regulated by acetate in bovine anterior pituitary
cells (Yonekura et al.
