Pinealectomy resulted in elevation of the MSH content of the pituitary glands of albino rats. This increased level of pituitary MSH persisted for several weeks in 9-week-old rats, but for only a few days in 3-week-old rats. The authors appreciate the expert technical assistance of Mrs. Lynn Barrett and Mrs. Sharon Viosca. We also thank Dr. Akira Arimura and Dr. Edward B. Ferguson, Jr., for their assistance.
