In vitro study of frog (Rana ridibunda Pallas) neurointermediate lobe secretion by use of a simplified perifusion system. IV. Interaction between dopamine and thyrotropin-releasing hormone on alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone secretion



General and Comparative Endocrinology 64(3): 428-434



The interaction between dopamine and TRH on alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (MSH) release from the intermediate lobe of amphibian pituitary has been studied in vitro using the perifusion model. Dopamine (10(-10) to 10(-6) M) was responsible for a dose-related inhibition of alpha-MSH secretion. The inhibitory effect of dopamine (10(-8) and 3.16 X 10(-8) M) was completely abolished in the presence of haloperidol (10(-5) and 10(-6) M, respectively). It has been previously established that, in amphibians, TRH stimulated alpha-MSH release in vitro and that the action of TRH was not mediated via an inhibition of the release of endogenous dopamine (M. C. Tonon, P. Leroux, M. E. Stoeckel, S. Jégou, G. Pelletier, and H. Vaudry, 1986, Endocrinology 112, 133-141). In the present study we demonstrate that TRH (10(-7) M) reverses the inhibitory effect of dopamine (for concentrations ranging from 3.16 X 10(-8) to 10(-6) M) on alpha-MSH secretion and that the effects of TRH and dopamine are additive. Thus, these results indicate that the intracellular events associated with TRH-induced stimulation and dopamine-induced inhibition of alpha-MSH release are not linked together.
