ABSTRACT

Highly purified populations of guinea pig Leydig cells were incubated
with a maximally stimulating dose of 100 ng/mL LH for 24 h in the
presence of increasing concentrations of sodium ascorbate. Sample
supernatants were extracted, concentrated under vacuum, and
reconstituted with acidified absolute ethanol. Samples were analyzed
for oxytocin using high-performance liquid chromatography with
electrochemical detection and known concentrations of an authentic
oxytocin standard. Leydig cells stimulated with 0, 25, and 50 microM
ascorbate produced and secreted 40.1 +/- 1.23, 77.4 +/- 13.8, 74.2 +/-
26.3 pg of an oxytocin-like peptide, respectively, per 1 x 10(6)
cells. These results indicate that guinea pig Leydig cells are capable
of producing an oxytocin-like peptide de novo and that low
concentrations of ascorbate stimulate the production of this peptide
in Leydig cells cultured in vitro.
