Clusterin is expressed in the anterior and intermediate lobes, but not in the posterior pituitary of sheep



Clusterin is expressed in the anterior and intermediate lobes, but not in the posterior pituitary of sheep



Journal of Molecular Endocrinology 23(2): 199-208



We have examined the expression of the ovine clusterin gene in the sheep pituitary gland, with the aim of determining its site of synthesis in this tissue. Pituitary glands were isolated from 5 adult Romney ewes at slaughter. Northern blotting analysis of extracted polyadenylated RNA, using a 32P-labelled rat clusterin cDNA probe, detected the greatest amounts of clusterin mRNA in the anterior part of dissected pituitary glands.
