Expression of neurotrophins and of the low-affinity neurotrophin receptor p75 was examined immunocytochemically in pituitary glands of twelve developing and adult macaques, ranging in age from fetal day 100 through age 5 years. Neurotrophins were identified by labeling with a rabbit polyclonal antiserum raised against purified mouse nerve growth factor, which recognizes brain-derived neurotropic factor and neurotrophin-3 as well. During pituitary morphogenesis, neurotrophins were present in… CONTINUE READING
