The influence of hormones of the posterior hypophyseal lobe on the stimulated thyroid gland

  • V. I. Gubskii
Experimental Biology


When an excess of pituitrin P is given to male rats thyroid function is depressed although the hypophyseal thyrotropic hormone content remains normal. If 6-methylthiouracil and pituitrin P are given together the gland responds to the thiouracil in the normal way, although under these conditions there is no increase of hypophyseal thyrotropic function.

Therefore pituitrin P must act directly on the thyroid parenchyma without the involvement of the thyrotropic hormone of the adenohypophysis.
