We have previously reported that the hyperprolactinemia in incubating turkey hens is associated with recruitment of lactotrophs in the pituitary gland. In this study we have used double immunofluorescence and in situ hybridization histochemistry to 1) identify mammosomatotrophs in the anterior pituitary gland of egg-laying turkey hens and incubating hens, and 2) verify PRL gene expression within mammosomatotrophs by colocalizing PRL messenger RNA in GH-immunoreactive (ir) cells. The pituitaries… CONTINUE READING
