Pit-1 is a pituitary-specific transcription factor responsible for activating the growth hormone (GH) gene family. The localization of Pit-1 protein in the pituitary of rainbow trout was studied by immunocytochemical analysis. Fish Pit-1 was found to be extensively localized in the nuclei of cells in the proximal pars distalis (PPD), rostral pars distalis… CONTINUE READING
