New perspectives in the function of pituitary folliculo-stellate cells

Molecular and Cellular Endocrinology
W AllaertsC Denef


Classical morphological studies of the folliculo-stellate (FS) cells of the anterior pituitary have suggested that these cells play roles as supporting cells, in metabolism and in macromolecular transport. Over the last 10 years the details of their activity in both trophic and catabolic processes has been clarified, and recent work has demonstrated several transport systems in these cells. Various novel peptides with growth factor or cytokine activity have been identified in FS cells and/or FS cell conditioned media. These recent functional experiments confirm and extend previous morphological and experimental studies, and in addition open new perspectives on the physiological roles of FS cells.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response.
