Different antisera directed against mammalian and piscine pituitary hormones, as well as a battery of various conventional histochemical techniques (PAS, Alcian Blue pH 2.5, Bromophenol Blue) and lectins, were used to identify the different hormonal cell types in the pituitary of the Senegalese sole, Solea senegalensis. Prolactin and adrenocorticotrophic(More)
We report the distribution of serotonin immunoreactive (5-HT-ir) structures in the brain of the adult Senegalese sole, Solea senegalensis, using the streptavidin-biotin-peroxidase complex immunohistochemical method. We have found a wide distribution of immunoreactive fibers throughout the entire brain. 5-HT-ir cell bodies appeared restricted to some(More)
CYP1A is a major inducible enzyme in the metabolism of xenobiotic substrates. In this paper we investigate by means of immunohistochemistry, the tissue distribution of constitutive cytochrome P4501A (CYP1A) during the period of endogenous nutrition (from hatching until day 4) in developing gilthead seabream, Sparus aurata larvae. For this purpose, a(More)
In this paper we present an anatomical description of the telencephalon of Solea senegalensis based on cresyl violet and haematoxilin-eosin-stained serial transverse sections. This work was conducted as a basis for the precise localization of neuroendocrine territories in the brain of a species with growing interest in marine aquaculture. The external(More)
We present the results of an immunohistochemical study aimed at localizing the neuropeptide Y (NPY) in the brain of the Senegalese sole, Solea senegalensis, using an antiserum raised against porcine NPY and the streptavidin-biotin-peroxidase method. In this species, we have identified immunoreactive cells in the ventral and dorsal telencephalon, caudal(More)
The distribution of galanin-like immunoreactive structures was studied in the brain of the Senegalese sole, Solea senegalensis, using immunohistochemical methods. Periventricular immunoreactive cell bodies were observed in the rostral pole of the preoptic recess, within the pars parvocellularis of the nucleus preopticus parvocellularis. Another(More)
In this paper we report the first complete mapping of the pituitary in a tuna species. The various different adenohypophysis cell types of the bluefin tuna, Thunnus thynnus L. have been identified and located using different antisera against mammalian and piscine hormones and various histochemical techniques: PAS, Alcian Blue pH 2.5 and lectins -ConA and(More)
The present paper reports the immunohistochemical distribution of the gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) structures in the brain of the Senegalese sole, Solea senegalensis. In this study, we have used two antibodies against the salmon GnRH and chicken GnRH-II forms and the streptavidin–biotin-peroxidase complex method. Immunoreactive cell bodies are(More)
