The expression of TSH subunit genes (TSH alpha and -beta) in pituitary thyrotropes is primarily regulated via circulating thyroid hormone levels (T3) and the hypothalamic TRH. Hypophyseal pars tuberalis (PT)-specific cells also express both hormonal subunits of TSH, but do not resemble thyrotropes of the pars distalis (PD) with respect to their distinct morphology, secretion, and direct modulation of TSH expression by photoperiodic inputs and melatonin. To investigate whether this distinct… CONTINUE READING
