Short-term but not long-term adrenalectomy modulates amplitude and frequency of the CRH41 episodic release in push-pull cannulated median eminence of free-moving rats.

CRH 41 release in push-pull cannulated median eminence (ME) was measured in unanesthetized male rats, 3 and 7 days after adrenalectomy (ADX) and in sham-lesioned controls. Perfusion started at 13.30 h and perfusate samples were collected at 5 min intervals for 3 h to estimate the mean release rate of CRH41. The major parameters of the neurohormone’s episodic release pattern were analyzed using the Ultra algorithm. In a parallel study, 3 groups of similarly treated rats were used to measure plasma ACTH and hypothalamic CRH41. Three days after ADX, the plasma ACTH titers had risen 14-fold, the hypothalamic CRH41 content had decreased by 40%, while the CRH41 release in the ME had doubled as a result of a significant increase in most variables of the pulsatile release pattern : pulse frequency (+34% ; P < 0.01), mean amplitude (+36% ; P < 0.05), mean peak levels (+67% ; P < 0.01) and mean pulse nadirs (x2.5 ; P < 0.01). Seven days after ADX, even though plasma ACTH had further increased to 30-times control levels, hypothalamic CRH41 content and CRH41 release in the ME had returned to almost control levels. The possible mechanisms of the discrepancy between the CRH and ACTH response time-courses following ADX are discussed.
