Vasopressin, oxytocin and CRF-41 all appear to be under important inhibitory regulation by dynorphin or a related peptide, while GnRH (and prolactin, in the rat) is modulated by fJ-endorphin. The dynorphinergic network seems to moderate activity in the vasopressin, oxytocin and CRF-41 neurons, probably in an autocrine or paracrine fashion: these peptides may in turn regulate GnRH release via fJ-endorphin. Thus, dynorphin acts mainly to counterregulate stress responsiveness, while fJ-endorphin mediates such responses.
