Folliculostellate cells of the anterior pituitary are postulated to be an important source of factors, such as follistatin, that regulate pituitary function by intercellular communication. To gain further insight into the function of this cell type, folliculostellate cells were enriched from cultured rat anterior pituitary cells, and an immortalized cell line designated FS/D1h was established and characterized. These FS/D1h cells express S100 immunoreactivity and produce IL-6 but not pituitary… CONTINUE READING
