Differential effects of melatonin on the stimulated release of LH from dispersed pituitary cells of the prepubertal female rat



Differential effects of melatonin on the stimulated release of LH from dispersed pituitary cells of the prepubertal female rat



Journal of Endocrinology 107(1): 107-112



When melatonin (0.25 or 1 nmol/l) was added to cultures of pituitary cells (from prepubertal rats) stimulated by LHRH or the calcium ionophore A23187, significant inhibition of the induced LH release was seen, but potassium-induced release of LH was not affected.
