The hagfish is considered the most primitive vertebrate known, living or extinct. It remains an enigma whether adenohypophysial hormones similar to those of more advanced vertebrates are present in the hagfish pituitary gland or not. The present study aimed to detect immunoreactive adenohypophysial hormones in the hagfish pituitary gland, using antisera to tetrapod and fish adenohypophysial hormones as immunohistochemical probes. For this purpose, two species of hagfish, the Atlantic hagfish… CONTINUE READING
