Abstract

Proteinase inhibitors were tested for their ability to inhibit prolactin (PRL) and growth hormone (GH) release by cultured anterior pituitary cells of the rat. Inhibitors of microbial origin (chymostatin, elastatinal, leupeptin) had either no or a moderate effect on hormones release while some tripeptide aldehydes, especially those with lysine at their C terminus, inhibited markedly PRL and to a lesser extent GH release. Boc-DPhe-Phe-lysinal was the most effective on lactotrophs inhibiting PRL release more than 50% at 10-4 M. The site(s) of action of tripeptide aldehydes remain to be elucidated.
