Resumen: Neurotensin (NT) and bombesin (BM)-like peptides are known to be involved in the regulation of the rat hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis. By using selective NT- and BM-receptor antagonists (NT-A and BM-A, respectively) we investigated whether endogenous NT and BM-like peptides play a role in the control of rat adrenal secretion and growth during enucleation-induced regeneration. At day 5 of regeneration, NT-A did not affect the plasma concentrations of aldosterone (PAC) and corticosterone (PBC), but at day 8, it raised both PAC and PBC over the respective baseline value; the simultaneous administration of NT abolished this effect of NT-A. BMA did not alter PAC and PBC at day 5 of regeneration, while at day 8 it enhanced PBC, an effect reversed by BM. NT-A did not alter mitotic index, and BM-A lowered it at both day 5 and day 8 of regeneration, an effect suppressed by the simultaneous administration of BM. Collectively, these findings allow us to draw the following conclusions: 1) endogenous NT and BM-like peptides influence adrenocortical regeneration in rats; 2) NT exerts a tonic inhibitory action on both aldosterone and corticosterone secretion, without affecting cellproliferation rate; and 3) BM-like peptides exert a tonic suppressive effect on corticosterone production, coupled with a clear-cut stimulating effect on cell proliferation.
