Failure of reserpine to block ether-induced release of prolactin: physiological evidence that stress induced prolactin release is not caused by acute inhibition of PIF secretion



Failure of reserpine to block ether-induced release of prolactin: physiological evidence that stress induced prolactin release is not caused by acute inhibition of PIF secretion



Life Sciences, I 12(7): 327-335



Plasma prolactin levels in the rat are raised by reserpine treatment. This effect has generally been attributed to the inhibition of the monoaminergic component of regulation of secretion of prolactin-inhibiting factor (PIF). It was found that ether stress, which produces prolactin release in normal rats, was equally effective in reserpine-treated animals whose initial basal prolactin levels were raised. These results indicate that the ether stress-induced release of prolactin is not due to inhibition of PIF secretion; they are compatible with the view that a prolactin-releasing substance mediates this acute secretory response.
