Thyrotropin releasing hormone in the pancreas of newborn rats from streptozotocin-treated mothers.

Abstract : The effect of maternal diabetes (induced by i.p. injections of 40-50 mg/kg BW Streptozotocin on the day of mating) on TRH in the pancreas of newborn rats was studied. Determination of peptide alpha amidation activity and TRH precursor level on the day of birth revealed decreased biosynthesis of TRH resulting in profoundly (10 times) lower pancreatic TRH and TRH-OH concentrations in pups of diabetic rats. Pancreatic His-Pro-diketopiperazine (His-Pro-DKP) remained unaffected by maternal diabetes. The depression of pancreatic TRH was less profound 24 h later, and even elevated TRH was measured in the pancreas of pups of diabetic mothers on postnatal day 5. Short term postnatal starvation or nursing of intact pups by the diabetic foster mother did not affect pancreatic TRH. It could be postulated that postnatal TRH development in the rat pancreas is retarded by maternal diabetes, while His-Pro-DKP remains unaltered.
