Functional significance of the cells in the pars anterior of the pituitary gland of the musk shrew (Suncus murinus L.).

Abstract

Seven morphologically and tinctorially distinct types of cells (types 1--7) have been distinguished in the pars anterior of the pituitary gland of the musk shrew (Suncus murinus L.). On the basis of their responses to various experimental stimuli, these cell types were correlated with the secretion of various trophic hormones. Type 1 cells exhibited… (More)
