Teh interaction of human pancreatic growth hormone releasing factor (hpGRF) and thyrotropin releasing hormone (TRH) on chicken growth hormone (cGH) release in vivo and possible noradrenergic involvement on TRH-induced stimulation of cGH in vivo were examined. Four-week old cockerels (.apprx. 1 kg) were injected intravenously with hpGRF (1.0 .mu.g/bird), TRH (0.1 .mu.g/bird), or hpGRF (1.0 .mu.g/bird), or hpGRF (1.0 .mu.g/bird) in combination with TRH (0.1 .mu.g/bird). Five min after the injection, blood samples were collected and serum concentrations of cGH were determined by a homologous RIA. The results showed that hpGRF and TRH were potent stimulators of cGH release, 5- and 6-fold over the control birds, respectively, and that hpGRF and TRH administered in combination produced a synergistic stimulation of cGH release (> 20 fold). In separate experiments, pretreatment with alpha-methyl-para-tyrosine (250 mg/bird) for 2 hours resulted in complete suppression of the TRH stimulatory effect on cGH release but not the stimulatory effect of hpGRF. Pretreated with phenoxybenzamine hydrochloride (20 mg/bird) or diethyl-dithiocarbamate (500 mg/bird) also resulted in complete suppression of TRH-induced cGH release. These results indicate that hpGRF acts directly at the pituitary and TRH acts at the hypothalamus in addition to the pituitary in stimulating cGH release, possibly mediated through the noradrenergic neurons. HpGRF and TRH were potent releasers of cGH and their stimulation was potentiated when administered together.
