Immunolocalisation of cytokeratins in the normal and neoplastic human pituitary gland

J W Ironside, J A Royds, A A Jefferson, W R Timperley

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Cytokeratins were studied by immunocytochemical techniques at light and electron microscopy on 12 normal pituitary glands, 30 pituitary adenomas and three craniopharyngiomas. The results are presented in relation to clinical and biochemical features and new information on the subcellular localisation of cytokeratins in pituitary cells is discussed.
