AbstractVasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) is a secretagogue for pituitary prolactin, but the importance of this peptide in the normal control of prolactin secretion is unclear. Recent studies suggest VIP synthesis within the rat anterior pituitary. We have shown (Endocrinology 124:1077) that the content of rat pituitary VIP increases in hypothyroidism. To confirm in situ pituitary synthesis of VIP and determine whether thyroid hormone effects on pituitary VIP relate to changes in VIP mRNA, Northern and in situ hybridization analyses of VIP mRNA in rat pituitaries were performed. Northern hybridization demonstrated an RNA species from rat pituitary consistent with rat VIP mRNA. Hypothyroidsm increased the content of pituitary VIP mRNA, and replacement with 1-thyroxine prevented this increase. In situ hybridization showed multiple, widely-distributed hybridizing cells in pituitaries from hypothyroid animals. A distinct population of VIP-producing pituitary cells exists which may serve to modulate prolactin secretion in a paracrine or autocrine fashion.
