Hormone and glucose responses to serial cardiac puncture in rats (38465). Academic Article uri icon


  • Serial, apparently basal radio-immunoassayable plasma insulin and growth-hormone values were obtained when fast-knock down ether anesthesia was used. Radioimmunoassayable prolactin was elevated at the second, third, and fourth bleedings but cause no apparent increase in circulating insulin levels. The elevation in plasma glucose may also have been a transient effect of sympathetic stimulation which simultaneous inhibited insulin release.
