Abstract

It can be concluded from these studies that: growth hormone (GH) and prolactin (PRO) are produced by two separate acidophilic cell types which predominate in different regions of the pars distalis of the primate pituitary. The carminophils and orangeophils as well as the concentration of primate PRO and GH vary during the life and reproductive cycles of the primate, and are influenced by the level of circulating sex steroids, and rhesus monkey GH and PRO are closely related immunochemically to human GH and ovine PRO, respectively.
