Resumen

We investigated the post-natal development of cell-to-cell communication within the rat anterior pituitary gland cells using immunohistochemistry of the S-100 protein. Tissues of animals from 10 to 60 days of age were analyzed. At 10 days of age, S-100 protein-containing cells were rarely observed. With age. the population of S-100 immunostaincd cells increased until day 40 when they were found to he quite numerous. No further changes were noted from day 40 through day 60. From our previous studies, we conclude that the cells which reacted with the S-100 antiserum were folliculo-stellatc cells and their developmental pattern parallels that of the hypophyseal-gonadal axis.
