Abstract

Pituitary halves incubated in pituitary stalk plasma release more luteinizing hormone than their opposite halves incubated in plasma from peripheral blood. Glands incubated in stalk plasma from dopamine-treated rats release more luteinizing hormone than glands incubated in stalk plasma from untreated controls. Luteinizing hormone-releasing activity in stalk plasma may be due to the luteinizing hormone-releasing factor, and the secretion of luteinizing hormone-releasing factor may be controlled by a dopaminergic mechanism.
