The inhibition of prolactin secretion and cyclic AMP accumulation in GH3 cells by muscarinic agonists was blocked by preincubation of the cells with pertussis toxin (islet-activating protein). There was a lag of approx. 80 min in the onset of the effect on secretion. These results suggest that muscarinic agonists decrease prolactin secretion by inhibiting adenylate cyclase activity.
