of male surstylus smaller than posterior lobe (Figs 9, 10).
The intermediate lobe lies in and around the posterior lobe, lateral maxilla and anterior lobe
The predilection of tumours to metastasize to posterior pituitary may be due to the fact that the neural portion has a blood supply directly from the systemic circulation while the anterior lobe
is supplied by the hypothalamus-hypophyseal portal system.
66 times as wide as long; collar narrow; anterior margin feebly sinuate; anterolateral angles slightly produced beyond collar; anterolateral borders deeply concave, angular; lateral borders of hind lobe subparallel, converging anteriorly; posterior margin sinuate; disc medially with longitudinal depression on anterior lobe
, flanked by 2 (1 + 1) large callosities; 2 (1 + 1) zig-zag carinae extending fore and hind lobe sublaterally; posterior lobe medially transversely elevated with granulate carina, sloping and shiny anteriorly.
Follicle- Anterior lobe
In females, it stimulates the
The anterior lobe
of the left middle turbinate was partially pneumatized.
Communication between the hypothalamus and anterior lobe
occurs through neurovasculature connections.
Among the eight genera known in the tribe Hoplinini, the new genus Cuscohoplininus resembles Parajalysus in general aspect and size, but can be easily distinguished by the following characters: Parajalysus is characterized by the four large, erect pronotal spines, one centered on the anterior lobe
, and on the posterior lobe, one at each humeral angle and one at the base of the meson; whereas, Cuscohoplininus has a single spine on the anterior pronotal lobe, an elongate scutellar spine (a tubercle is present in Parajalysus), and lacks a process on the caudal edge of the male genitalia capsule.
The anterior lobe
is composed of mixed and serous acini.
Contraception Associated Protein (CAP1) was recently identified in the anterior lobe
of the pituitary gland (AP) of Golden Syrian hamsters by proteomic analyses (Blake et al.
Cyrtometopinine with subrectangular slightly expanding glabella, possessing broad, relatively low trapezoidal anterior lobe
(LA); medially it slopes down together with the anterior border.
16] The anterior lobe
receives most of the proprioceptive input, maintains equilibrium, coordinates automatic movements and regulates muscle tone.
