dc.description.abstractThe pituitary gland of the milkfish, Chanos chanos, was studied at different stages of sexual maturation and spawning. Consecutive median sagittal sections were treated with a range of stains to demonstrate the different cell types and regions. The milkfish pituitary consists of a neural component, the neurohypophysis, and an epithelial component, the adenohypophysis, which in turn consists of three regions: the rostral pars distalis (RPD), proximal pars distalis (PPD), and pars intermedia (PI). However, unlike most teleosts, the pituitary gland of the milkfish is encased in a bony chamber, has dorsal and ventral lobes and extends anteriorly from its point of origin at the base of the brain. PAS (+) basophils are found in all regions of the adenohypophysis, but mostly in the proximal pars distalis. These cells undergo hypertrophy and hyperplasia during sexual maturation, shrinkage and degranulation during spawning.en
