Dopamine receptors in the anterior lobe of the human pituitary gland: autoradiographic localization.

We examined the distribution of dopamine and serotonin receptors in human pituitary gland by light microscopic autoradiography using [3H]spiperone as a binding ligand. Clusters of specific binding sites for [3H]spiperone were observed in the anterior pituitary. This clustering is similar to the clustering of lactotrophs observed in immunohistochemical… CONTINUE READING
