The pathological diagnosis was GCT of the neurohypophysis
The recent work by Lee et al (22) and Mete et al (23) shows that there is far more in common among pituicytoma, spindle cell oncocytoma, and granular cell tumor of neurohypophysis
than was originally suspected.
We speculate that myocardial necrosis in humans might lead to vasopressin release independently of neurohypophysis
Astroglial modulation of neurotransmitter/peptide release from the neurohypophysis
It is well known that oxytocin is secreted in neurohypophysis
in both male and female, have a significant role in control of behavior but its role in male behavior has not been studied in detail as much as studied in the behavior of females.
Presence of vasopressin, oxytocin and neurophysin in the retina of mammals, effect of light and darkness, comparison with the neuropeptide content of the neurohypophysis
and the pineal gland.
In the magnocellular neurosecretory system (MNS), CNTF is exclusively expressed in astrocytes of the supraoptic nucleus (SON), which are predominately located in the ventral glial limitans (VGL), and perivascular cells of the neurohypophysis
Another interesting observation is the localization of AQP4 in the neurohypophysis
, where osmoreceptors control the release of ADH by an undefined process.
Role of neurohypophysis
in the pathogenesis of hypertension and some allied disorders associated with aging.
Pituicytoma is a distinct low-grade glioma arising from pituicytes of the neurohypophysis
Endogenous opiates regulate oxytocin but not vasopressin secretion from the neurohypophysis
9-11) In addition, TTF1 transcripts were detected in developing diencephalon, restricted to the hypothalamic area and to the infundibulum at the earliest stages of their differentiation, forming the posterior lobe of the pituitary, namely, the neurohypophysis
Copeptin, the C-terminal part of the vasopressin prohormone, is secreted stoichiometrically with arginine-vasopressin from the neurohypophysis
is made up of the pars nervosa, infundibular stalk and the infundibula proper.
