Prolactin (PRL) and growth hormone (GH) cells were immunostained in the anterior pituitary lobe of the California leaf-nosed bat with antisera against rat PRL and GH by the unlabeled immunoperoxidase technique. The PRL antiserum reacts with a cell that is carmoisinophilic and pleomorphic and occurs in small groups within the ventro-, dorsocentral, and posteriolateral regions of the pars distalis. The cells that stain with the anti-GH serum are orangeophilic, smaller than the PRL cells, and… CONTINUE READING
