Cells which contain prolactin were clearly distinguished from those which contain growth hormone in adult monkey pituitary glands by means of histologic and fluorescent antibody techniques. The results indicate that in primates, as well as in other mammals, prolactin is immunochemically distinguishable from growth homone.
