Immunohistochemical detection of changes in growth hormone cells in rat pituitaries in protein deficiency.

Abstract

1. An immunohistochemical method was used to study the effect of a low-protein diet on growth hormone (GH) cells in the pituitaries of developing rats. The deficient diet (80 g protein/kg) was administered during gestation and lactation, or during the time after weaning until 90 d of age, or during both periods. 2. GH-cell changes were much more striking in… (More)
