  • median
  • A group of the 24-26 paraldehyde fuchsin-positive median neurosecretory cells (MNC) in the pars intercerebralis of the brain of the blowfly, Calliphora vomitoria , has shown immunoreactivity towards three different antibodies to α -endorphin, a peptide that corresponds to the amino acid sequence present between residues 61 and 76 of the precursor molecule, β -lipotropin ( β -LPH). (springer.com)
  • The immunoreactive material could be followed in axons within the median bundle, the tract through which neurosecretory material from the MNC is passed down to the corpus cardiacum (CC). The α -endorphin-immunoreactive material was observed leaving the CC in the cardiac-recurrent nerve, dorsal to the proventriculus, in the direction of the abdomen. (springer.com)

  • They are then transported along neuronal axons to their axon terminals forming the bulk of the median eminence, where they are stored and released into the hypophyseal portal system. (wikipedia.org)
  • hormones
  • Somatostatin, also known as growth hormone-inhibiting hormone (GHIH) or by several other names, is a peptide hormone that regulates the endocrine system and affects neurotransmission and cell proliferation via interaction with G protein-coupled somatostatin receptors and inhibition of the release of numerous secondary hormones. (wikipedia.org)
  • pituitary
  • Thus, the GnRH neuronal system is the master regulator of this hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis responsible for female reproduction. (oxfordre.com)
  • The portal system carries the CRH to the anterior lobe of the pituitary, where it stimulates corticotropes to secrete adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) and other biologically-active substances (β-endorphin). (wikipedia.org)
  • endocrine
  • Because of the involvement of the UII system in multiple biological systems such as the cardiovascular, nervous, endocrine, and renal, it represents a promising target for the development of new drugs. (wikipedia.org)
  • physiological
  • This work is revealing that the control of body and organ size does not reside in any specific cellular or molecular mechanism but that it is a systems property in which cellular, physiological and environmental signals all contribute in inextricable ways to produce the final phenotype. (duke.edu)
  • neural
  • Similar accumulation has been found in neural system of starving, unparasitized caterpillars, but not nearly to the same extent. (wikipedia.org)
  • peptides
  • Ct-like peptides and CRF-related peptides both stimulate cAMP production by isolated tubules, but it is suspected that CT-like peptides target a different cAMP-dependent effector system or activate a different second messenger pathway. (wikipedia.org)
  • fish
  • This evidence suggests that active principles which are known to play active roles in water balance in animals higher, phylogenetically, than fish, are liberated from the hypothalamico-neurohypophysial system of Salmo gairdneri in response to a hypertonic environment. (ubc.ca)
  • U-II was initially isolated from the neurosecretory system of the Goby fish (Gillichthys mirabilis). (wikipedia.org)
