The pituitary system of the hagfish remains an enigma. The present study has aimed to detect possible adenohypophysial hormones in the pituitary gland of the brown hagfish, Paramyxine atami, by means of immunohistochemistry in combination with lectin histochemistry. Rabbit antisera raised against ovine luteinizing hormone (LH)β, proopiomelanocortin (POMC)-related peptides, and the growth hormone/prolactin family of tetrapod and fish species were used, and 25 kinds of lectins were tested.
