Provides a common language for endocrinologists, neurosurgeons, OB/GYNs, and endocrine researchers to discuss how the pituitary gland and hormones affect each major organ system Readership Researchers, practitioners, and graduate students, in endocrinology and researchers of endocrine diseases across biomedical disciplines, as well as those working with endocrinologists . Publisher Summary Most of the recent insight into the mechanisms of pituitary development has come from studies in mice, this chapter therefore, primarily focuses on development of mouse with references to other species (including humans) when significant differences are known or in cases of direct clinical relevance. Diabetes insipidus is caused by problems with antidiuretic hormone (also called vasopressin), a pituitary gland hormone responsible for maintaining the correct level of fluid in the body. Either the pituitary gland does not secrete enough of this hormone (called central diabetes insipidus) or the kidneys do not respond normally to the hormone (called nephrogenic diabetes insipidus). PITUITARY BODY. tailed modes of preparation are similar to those employed previously in the case of the suprarenal bodyl. The dialyzed extracts we find to be active, so that the substances to which the activity is due are not proteids. In most of our experiments a solution equivalent to about one part of the dried material to four of water or normal saline was used, and this has been always Cited by:

Tropes are specialized hormone producing cells found within the posterior pituitary, which stimulate endocrine organs throughout the body. e. The anterior pituitary receives signal through direct connection with the hypothalamus. Cat Pituitary Tumors. The pituitary gland is on the underside of the cat’s brain. It is attached to a very important part of the brain called the hypothalamus. This area is a collecting center that will gather the information from the cat’s body and determine if the body is in good working order.
