The presence and distribution of bombesin (BBS)/gastrin-releasing peptide (GRP)-like immunoreactivity (IR) was examined in the goldfish pituitary and forebrain. BBS/GRP-like IR nerve fibres were consistently observed throughout the pituitary neurointermediate lobe (NIL); occasionally, BBS/GRP-like material was localized in cells and few fibres within the pars distalis. Within the goldfish forebrain, sparse, fine-beaded BBS/GRP-like IR fibres and few perikarya were detected in the preoptic… CONTINUE READING
