Trh and cyclo his pro like immunoreactivities in the cerebrospinal fluids of normal infants and adults and patients with various neuropsychiatric and neurologic disorders


, : Trh and cyclo his pro like immunoreactivities in the cerebrospinal fluids of normal infants and adults and patients with various neuropsychiatric and neurologic disorders. Life Sciences 41(22): 2419-2428

Levels of thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) - and cyclo(His-Pro) (CHP)-like immunoreactivities and the activity of enzyme Pyroglutamate aminopeptidase (PAPase) were measured in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of over 100 normal adults (NA) and infants, and adult patients with various neurologic and neuropsychiatric disorders (NNDA). Levels of TRH and CHP in CSF of over 70% of the NA group were below 50 and 500 pg/ml respectively. The TRH- and CHP-like immunoreactivities in the remainder of the 30% of NA specimens exhibiting higher peptide concentrations were enzymatically and chromatographically characterized and were found to behave like authentic peptides. The levels of both of these peptides were significantly elevated in the CSF of most of the NNDA patients. An elevation of the CSF level of CHP was significantly correlated with the level of TRH, but not PAPase. Results from this study suggest that CSF elevation of TRH level may be due to a nonspecific response to stress that may be associated with hospitalization, myelogram procedure, and/or the neurologic and neuropsychiatric diseases for which the patients were admitted.
