Localization of human pituitary hormones by multiple immunoenzyme staining procedures using monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies
Mouse monoclonal and rabbit polyclonal antibodies to human pituitary hormones were applied together to sections of normal and neoplastic human pituitary tissue. Binding sites were revealed with species-specific immune reagents combined with various enzymes (peroxidase, alkaline phosphatase, and beta-D-galactosidase). The enzymes were developed separately to give differently colored end-products. Where two hormones were present in the same cell, a mixed color was produced. Up to four hormones could be immunostained in a single section. Multiple immunoenzymatic staining has great potential for the analysis of plural antigen production by single cells and relationships between cells producing different antigens.
