Distribution of immunoreactive thyrotropin-releasing hormone in the forebrain and hypophysis of the bullfrog, Rana catesbeiana

, : Distribution of immunoreactive thyrotropin-releasing hormone in the forebrain and hypophysis of the bullfrog, Rana catesbeiana. Cell and Tissue Research 233(3): 507-516

The distribution of immunoreactive thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) in the forebrain and hypophysis of Rana catesbeiana was studied by means of specific radioimmunoassay and immunohistochemistry based on peroxidase-antiperoxidase (PAP) techniques. A relatively high concentration of immunoassayable TRH is present in the hypothalamus. Immunoreactive TRH cell bodies are found in the anterior part of the preoptic nucleus, the dorsal infundibular nucleus, the nucleus of diagonal band of Broca, and the medial part of the amygdala. Immunoreactive nerve terminals are observed in the neurohypophysis and the external layer of the median eminence, where the terminals are in close contact with the capillary loops of the hypophyseal portal vessels. The possible role of TRH in the frog brain is discussed.

C-X-C chemokine receptor type 7 (CXCR7) has recently been characterised as a novel receptor for the C-X-C motif chemokine 12 (CXCL12)/stromal cell-derived factor 1-alpha.
