Abstract

The present communication deals with a histological study of the pituitary gland of the teleost fish Mugil cephalus, found in the estuarine waters of Cochin area. Six different cell types were identified in the pituitary gland on the basis of their grouping, distribution and staining properties. The prolactin and the TSH cells (thyroid stimulating hormone producing cells or thyrotrops) were identified in the rostral pars distalis and the ACTH cells (adrenocorticotropic hormone producing cells or corticotrops) in the interphase between the neurohypophysis and the rostral pars distalis. The STH cells (somatotropic hormone producing cells or somatotrops) and the gonadotropic cells were distinguished in the proximal pars distalis and the MSH cells (melanin stimulating hormone producing cells or melanotrops) in the pars intermedia
