Sexually dimorphic effects of aging on tuberoinfundibular dopaminergic neurons and lactotropes of rats.

Abstract

The effect of aging on plasma prolactin (PRL) levels, hypothalamic tuberonifundibular dopaminergic (TIDA) neurons and pituitary lactotropes was evaluated in prolactinoma-free young (5-month-old) and old (23- to 24-month-old) Long-Evans rats of either sex.
