Abstract

Basal release of Gn-RH from perifused medial-basal hypothalami of rats was at or below levels detectable by radioimmunoassay. Infusion of norepinephrine, dopamine, acetylcholine or serotonin (0.1–10 mM) as 10–20 min pulses was not associated with a detectable increase of Gn-RH in the effluent. However, 10–20 min pulses of melatonin (0.1–1.0 mM) consistently caused release of Gn-RH.
