Trh medullary site of action to induce gastric ulcers and stimulate acid secretion


, : Trh medullary site of action to induce gastric ulcers and stimulate acid secretion. Brain Research 459(1): 148-152

This study evaluated the hypothesis that the dorsal motor nucleus (DMN) of the brainstem may mediate the ulcerogenic and acid-stimulatory effects of thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) in rats. To accomplish this, intra-DMN microinjections of TRH (50 and 500 ng) were performed and their effects on acid secretion and gastric ulcer formation evaluated in the pylorus-ligation model. The high (500 ng), but not the low dose of TRH (50 ng) produced gastric glandular lesions in 64% of the rats with a mean severity index (no. of ulcers/rat) of 6.4 .+-. 0.98 and significantly increased gastric acid output. The ulcerogenic and gastric secretory response to intra-DMN TRH was site-specific. We conclude that presynaptic TRH fibers may modulate vagal activity at the level of the DMN and propose that descending TRH pathways may play a role in experimental ulcerogenesis through acid hypersecretion.
