Immunocytochemical localization of neuropeptides (beta-endorphin, substance P, arginine vasopressin, oxytocin), pituitary hormones (adrenocorticotropin, prolactin, growth hormone, follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), gonadal inhibin, gastrin, and human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG)) was carried out in marmoset testis during development. Both intensity of(More)
Immunocytochemical localization of FSH was carried out in various cell types of marmoset testes during development using antisera generated against intact as well as beta-subunit of human FSH. Significant differences in the intensity as well as distribution of FSH in various cell types were observed in neonatal, pubertal, and adult marmosets. Intensity of(More)
A comparative study on the immunocytochemical localization, de novo biosynthesis, and hormonal modulation of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) was carried out in the prostates of man, monkey, dog, guinea pig, hamster, rat, and mouse. FSH was localized in the cytoplasm of the prostatic epithelial cells. In some specimens, staining was also observed in the(More)
Using polyclonal antibodies against a 13 KD human testicular inhibin, immunocytochemical localization studies were carried out in marmoset monkey testes. The pattern as well as the intensity of immunocytochemical staining for inhibin vary substantially during development. In early development (day 1 to 2 months) Leydig cells are the predominant cell types(More)
The Janus-associated kinase 2 (JAK2) V617F mutation is believed to play a critical role in the pathogenesis of polycythemia vera, essential thrombocythemia, and idiopathic myelofibrosis. The discovery of activating mutations associated with inhibition of cascade of events mediated by JAK2 target became an attractive approach for the treatment of(More)
