Early detection of secretogranin-II (SgII) in the human fetal pituitary: immunocytochemical study using an antiserum raised against a human recombinant SgII.

Secretogranin-II (SgII) is a protein contained within secretory granules of mainly gonadotrophs. The purpose of this study was to determine whether SgII immunoreactivity (SgII-IR) in the human fetal pituitary was temporally related to gonadotropin immunoreactivity. A specific antihuman SgII antiserum was thus required. A complementary DNA clone with an open reading frame for human (h) SgII was synthesized by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction from pituitary total RNA. This clone was used to obtain the SgII polypeptide (-9 to 152) as a fusion protein, in a heterologous expression prokaryotic system. Antisera against the fusion protein were raised in rabbits and checked for specificity and sensitivity through Western blotting. Human fetal pituitaries from week 6 of gestation onward were used for immunocytochemical studies. Consecutive semithin sections were treated with the specific antisera against hSgII, beta-endorphin, and hPRL and with monoclonal antibodies to hCG alpha, hLH, and hFSH. SgII immunoreactivity appeared at week 8 and was restricted to pituitary cells expressing beta-endorphin (100% colocalization). At week 9, FSH-positive cells did not contain SgII. From week 10, gonadotrophs progressively exhibited SgII-IR, up to 50% of that in FSH-containing cells at week 26. The granin was never found in PRL cells whatever the stage of development. The present data demonstrate that SgII-IR is detected very early in fetal life; however, the positive cells are not gonadotrophs, but corticotrophs. Within gonadotrophs, SgII appears subsequent to hormones. At birth, more than 90% of SgII-IR cells are represented by corticotrophs and gonadotrophs.

Immunohistochemical detection of prolactin and its receptors in human testis.

Prolactin (PRL) and PRL receptors were localized by light microscopic immunohistochemistry in the human testes on interstitial Leydig-like cells. Similar stainings were obtained with both monoclonal antihuman PRL antibodies and polyclonal antibodies raised against rabbit mammary gland PRL receptors. Moreover, the detection of PRL binding sites by radio-receptor assay on the same samples gave a confirmation of these results. This suggests that PRL might act directly on Leydig cells in the man, in the same way as in the rodent.
