Abstract

An attempt was made to identify rat pituitary growth hormone cells by immunocytochemical methods utilizing monkey antisera to shark growth hormone, snapping turtle growth hormone, and rat growth hormone. The localization of rat growth hormone at the light microscope level was achieved using a modification of the unlabeled antibody enzyme method of Sternberger. Specific staining was observed in cells that were ovoid or pyramidal in shape which were generally evenly distributed across the entire section.
