Summary

This chapter contains section titled:

  • Investigation of the specificity of response

  • Mitotic response to typical ACTH compared with that due to growth hormone preparations.

  • The mitotic response following growth hormone and 84-85 H used together.

  • The relationship of the mitotic activity in the adrenal with time following hypophysectomy

  • The time of onset of mitosis in the adrenal cortex of the hypophysectomized rat following injection of growth hormone

  • Fractionation of ACTH and growth hormone.
