The immature type of pro-opiomelanocortin cell of the rat anterior pituitary as observed by immunogold electron microscopy.

Abstract

The perinatal development of glandular cells in the rat anterior pituitary producing pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC), the precursor protein of peptide hormones including adrenocorticotropin (ACTH), melanocyte-stimulating hormones (MSH) and endorphins was studied by an immunoelectron microscopic technique using the colloidal gold-antibody method. The POMC cells… (More)
