The gene expression and intracellular localization of somatolactin (SL), a putative pituitary hormone structurally related to both growth hormone and prolactin, were investigated in the pituitary of rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss. Using an in situ hybridization technique, we demonstrated the gene expression of the SL molecule in cells bordering the neurohypophysial tissue in the pars intermedia. These cells were identified immunocytochemically as SL-cells on the adjacent section. Electron… CONTINUE READING
