Immunoperoxidase staining for corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) in the median eminence was sparce or absent from premetamorphic tadpoles, but increased dramatically by late prometamorphosis. Quantitative photometry revealed that CRF-like immunostaining material in the median eminence was most dense in metamorphic climax tadpoles. Arginine vasotocin (AVT)-like immunostaining material was visualized in perikarya of the magnocellular nucleus, with extensive fiber staining seen in the medial… CONTINUE READING
