Immunohistochemical techniques were used to determine the distribution of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in the adult rat pituitary gland. In the posterior lobe, BDNF staining was found only within fibers. Within the intermediate lobe, nearly all cells were labeled intensely for BDNF. In the anterior lobe, varying degrees of BDNF immunoreactivity were observed exclusively in cells shown by double-labeling techniques to contain thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), although not all TSH… CONTINUE READING
