Tissue from pars distalis of adenohypophysis. Distinguish acidophils from basophils from chromophobes. Tissue highly vascularized
Pintuyitary gland: Human Pituitary
Find basophils and acidophils. Note colloid-containing vesicles near boundary between pars distalis and pars nervosa. Look for Herring bodies (if stained) and nuclei of pituicytes.
Pituitary gland: Human Hypophysis
Colloid is primarily thyroglobulin. Parafolicular (C) cells are stained less intensely than follicle-lining cells and synthesize and secrete thyrocalcitonin
Thyroid gland: thyroid and parathyroid
Composed of densely packed secretory chief cells and an extensive network of fenestrated capillaries. ID oxyphil cells: larger and more acidophilic than chief cells--in groups
Parathyroid gland: parathyroid
From older individual: gland infiltrated with adipose tissue. Groups of oxyphil cells are easier to find on this slide
Parathyroid gland: parathyroid
Presence of capsule around cortex. Note very large blood vessels. Thickest layer of cortex: zona fasciculata--lighter staining cells arranged in columns with sinusoidal capillaries between each column.
Suprarenal (Adrenal) Gland: Adrenal Gland, beef
ID different layers of cortex and medulla, but not as clear. Note blood supply to organ
Suprarenal (Adrenal) Gland: Adrenal Gland, Monkey
Slide resembles nervous tissue. Most of cells belong to pinealocytes that secrete melatonin. Find benign calcium precipitates that mark pineal gland--diagnostic of pineal
Pineal gland: Pineal Body
