Steroids can modulate transdifferentiation of prolactin and growth hormone cells in bovine pituitary cultures.


Fluctuations in the proportions of pituitary acidophils (cells that release GH and PRL, either separately or concurrently) have been correlated with dynamic changes in the steroid hormone milieu. Since modulation of these acidophilic subtypes can occur without appreciable alterations in the total number of acidophils, it has been proposed that GH- and PRL… (More)
