Endorphins are located in the intermediate and anterior lobes of the pituitary gland, not in the neurohypophysis



Endorphins are located in the intermediate and anterior lobes of the pituitary gland, not in the neurohypophysis



Life Sciences 20(1): 43-47



Immunocytofluorescence techniques with well characterized [rabbit] antisera to .alpha.-endorphin and .beta.-endorphin show presence of these 2 peptides in all cellular elements of the pars intermedia of the rat hypophysis, and in discrete cells of the pars distalis (adenohypophysis) with the complete exclusion of the neurohypophysis (pars nervosa, posterior lobe).
