METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS Here, we report that SIRT1 is abundantly expressed in pituitary thyrotropes and regulates thyroid hormone(More)
In situ hybridization (ISH) at the electron microscopic (EM) level is essential for elucidating the intracellular distribution and role of mRNA in protein synthesis. EM-ISH is considered to be an important tool for clarifying the intracellular localization of mRNA and the exact site of pituitary hormone synthesis on the rough endoplasmic reticulum. A(More)
