Localization of sialic acid-containing hormones in GTH cells and ACTH cells of the rat anterior pituitary


The localization of sialic acid-containing substances in the rat anterior pituitary gland has been studied by light and electron microscopy, using a peroxidase-labeled lectin (Limulus polyphemus agglutinin: LPA) which binds specifically to sialic acid residues. LPA stains two types of anterior pituitary cells: (1) round or ovoid cells which are also… (More)
