Neurotensin stimulated inositol phosphilipid hydrolysis in matched coronal vibratome sections through the rat brain. This effect was tetrodotoxin-resistant and a good correlation was noticed between the magnitude of neurotensin-stimulated inositol phospholipid hydrolysis and the number of specific [3H]neurotensin binding sites in various brain regions. Neurotensin produced no significant effect on either basal or stimulated cAMP levels.
