The pars distalis of the pituitary of Rana ridibunda captured throughout the spring and summer was examined with immunofluorescence techniques using antisera to mammalian pituitary hormones. On the basis of their immunoreactivity, four different cell types are recognized: 1) cells immunoreactive to anti-bovine LTH, 2) cells immunoreactive to anti-bovine(More)
The distribution of monoamines in the brain of Triturus alpestris tadpoles was investigated with the Falck-Hillarp histofluorescence method. This study concerns especially the diencephalon where is observed the major part of the monoaminergic (MA) neurons. MA fiber tracts are found in the striatum, the septal nucleus and the medial and lateral forebrain(More)
This report describes the pathological changes observed in the brain of a 18-year-old patient who died with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) of the ataxic and panencephalopathic type. Clinically, the disease began at age 17 with a rapidly progressive cerebellar syndrome, associated with myoclonus and mental deterioration. Cranial CT scan and MRI showed minor(More)
Immunohistochemical methods have been used to study the embryonic and postnatal development of the hormone-producing cells in the adenohypophysis of the lizard Gallotia galloti. In this species, Rathke's pouch is formed between stages 30 to 32 of the embryonic development, although the first sign of immunoreactivity to antisera against adenohypophysial(More)
