A detailed analysis of the difference in the localization and the immunoreactivity for various surface markers among folliculo-stellate cells, macrophages, and dendritic cells was performed using immunohistochemistry and electron microscopy of the rat pituitary gland. The folliculo-stellate cells were selectively labeled by an antiserum against S100 protein. The majority of dendritic cells were immunoreactive for the MHC class II (Ia) antigen (OX6) and/or the dendritic cell antibodies (OX62… Expand
Immunophenotypical changes of neoplastic cells and tumor-associated macrophages in a rat dendritic cell sarcoma-derived transplantable tumor line (KB-D8)
TLDR
Investigating immunophenotypical changes of KB-D8 tumor cells and tumor-associated macrophages appearing in relation to tumor development in syngeneic F344 rats indicated that immunophenotypes of dendritic cell-derived sarcomas may be changeable depending on microenvironmental conditions in vivo. Expand
Nestin-immunoreactive cells in rat pituitary are neither hormonal nor typical folliculo-stellate cells.
TLDR
Nestin-ir is present in the pituitary in cells that are neither hormonal nor typical folliculo-stellate, and the expression pattern depends on age and lobe examined. Expand
Cluster of differentiation (CD) 9-positive mouse pituitary cells are adult stem/progenitor cells.
TLDR
Induction into all types of hormone-producing cells was successful, and reduction of CD9 and CD81 mRNAs by siRNAs inhibited cell proliferation, indicating that CD9/CD81/S100β/SOX2-positive cells may play a role as adult stem/progenitor cells in SOX1-positive subpopulations, thus supplying hormone- producing cells in the postnatal anterior lobe. Expand
Macrophages are activated in the rat anterior pituitary under chronic inflammatory conditions
TLDR
It is shown that macrophages, but not folliculostellate cells, were selectively increased in the AP in the complete Freund's adjuvant (CFA)-induced chronic inflammatory pain model in rats, and this results suggest that AP macrophage contributes to GH release through IL-1β during chronicinflammatory pain. Expand
TGF-β1-conditioned glial cell-derived dendritic cells inhibit expansion of MBP-reactive T cells in vitro
TLDR
Results indicate that TGF-β1-mediated functional skewing of GC-DC plays a critical role for the elimination of MBP-reactive T cells. Expand
Folliculo-stellate Cells: Paracrine Communicators in the Anterior Pituitary
TLDR
A brief review reveals the need for this communication system, what the authors know of the plethora of products secreted by Folliculo-Stellate cells, the many receptors to which they respond, and the role of these enigmatic cells in the physiology of the stress/immune axis, the gonadotroph cells and the pituitary vasculature. Expand
Macrophage migration inhibitory factor is released from pituitary folliculo-stellate-like cells by endotoxin and dexamethasone and attenuates the steroid-induced inhibition of interleukin 6 release.
TLDR
The results suggest that the FS cells are both a source of and a target for MIF and raise the possibility that MIF serves as a paracrine/autocrine factor in the pituitary gland that contributes to the protective neuroendocrine response to endotoxin. Expand
CHAPTER 27 – Anatomy of the Hypothalamo–Hypophysial Complex
TLDR
This chapter focuses on the anatomy of the hypothalamo–hypophysial complex, the glandular portion of the pituitary body at the base of the brain, where epithelial cells and smooth muscle cells—the motor elements of the neuroendocrine and autonomic nervous systems—arise in the diencephalon. Expand
Paracrinicity: The Story of 30 Years of Cellular Pituitary Crosstalk

TLDR
In the anterior pituitary, paracrine communication and autocrine loops that operate during fetal and postnatal development in mammals and lower vertebrates have been shown in all hormonal cell types and in folliculo‐stellate cells. Expand
Outcome of adrenal tissue fragments allotransplantation: the impact of cryopreservation.
TLDR
Cryopreserved allografts cause a less severe rejection by decreasing graft immunogenicity, which might be important for prolonging allografted survival. Expand

Abstract The detailed distribution and heterogeneity of various immunocompetent cells were characterized in the normal adrenal gland of the rat, with special emphasis on major histocompatibilityExpand
Maturation of rat dendritic cells during intrahepatic translocation evaluated using monoclonal antibodies and electron microscopy
TLDR
It is suggested that normal rat liver contains resident dendritic cells which downregulate phagocytic activity and mature into potent accessory cells during migration from the portal vein toward the central vein. Expand
Morphological, immunohistochemical and functional homologies between pituitary folliculo-stellate cells and lymphoid dendritic cells.
TLDR
The present data suggest of a homology between lymphoid dendritic cells and pituitary folliculo-stellate cells, or at least a subgroup of the latter cells. Expand
Immunohistochemical, Morphological and Ultrastructural Resemblance between Dendritic Cells and Folliculo‐Stellate Cells in Normal Human and Rat Anterior Pituitaries
TLDR
The present finding of a proportion of S100‐positive pituitary cells with ultrastructural and immunohistochemical characteristics of both dendritic cells and folliculo‐stellate cells, confirms the suggested heterogeneity of the latter cell group with respect to their ultrastructureural phenotype and putative function. Expand
Development of microglia and macrophages in the postnatal rat pituitary
TLDR
There are, therefore, considerable differences in the density, morphology and activity between the populations of myelomonocytic cells in the postnatal rat neuro- and adenohypophyses. Expand
The MRC OX-62 antigen: a useful marker in the purification of rat veiled cells with the biochemical properties of an integrin
TLDR
A mouse immunoglobulin G1 monoclonal antibody (mAb), MRC OX-62 (OX-62), was raised against density gradient-enriched rat veiled (dendritic) cells obtained from lymph and showed that it did not label all classical dendritic cells and was not restricted to this cell type. Expand
The heterogeneity of mononuclear phagocytes in lymphoid organs: distinct macrophage subpopulations in rat recognized by monoclonal antibodies ED1, ED2 and ED3.
TLDR
A set of three monoclonal antibodies is described, each of which recognizes cells of the monocyte-macrophage lineage in the rat, with results showing that ED1 recognizes a cytoplasmic antigen in monocytes and in most macrophages, free and fixed. Expand
Rat macrophage lysosomal membrane antigen recognized by monoclonal antibody ED1.
TLDR
The monoclonal antibody ED1 appears to recognize a heavily glycosylated protein of 90,000-110,000 MW, depending on the cell type used as antigen source, and a possible relation with other known lysosomal glycoproteins with a similar molecular weight is discussed. Expand
Immunohistochemical and immunoelectron microscopic localization of S-100 protein in the interdigitating reticulum cells of the human lymph node
TLDR
Immunoelectron micrographs revealed that S-100 proteincontaining d endritic shaped cells of both non-specific and dermatopathic lymphadenitis corresponded to interdigitating reticulum cells (IRC), which suggested that IRCs themselves synthesized S- 100 protein. Expand

TLDR
The presence of S-100 is reported in normal human skin, where the antigen seems to be located specifically in melanocytes and in cells with morphological features of Langerhans cells. Expand
