Most research on the anterior pituitary (adenohypophysis) has concentrated on the endocrine cells characterized by their complement of cytoplasmic dense-cored vesicles containing the classic anterior pituitary hormones. However it has become increasingly clear over the last 20 years that cells first identified more than 50 years ago in the basis that they lack such dense-cored vesicles and now known generically as folliculo-stellate or follicular cells have important physiological functions and… CONTINUE READING
