The structural and ultrastructural characteristics of adenohypophyseal growth hormone (GH)-, prolactin (PRL)- and GH-PRL (SMT)-secreting cells were studied using immunocytochemical techniques in two normal and one lactating male goat. SMT cells were found in both types of males, which showed the same characteristics as those reported for the female. PRL and SMT cells were more frequent in the lactating male, which reflects their greater galactopoietic activity. GH cells did not seem to influence this process significantly.
