The pars tuberalis is part of the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland, and wraps the pituitary stalk in a highly vascularized sheath.
Additional recommended knowledge
Prinicipal cells of the pars tuberalis are low columnar in form, with the cytoplasm containing numerous lipid droplets, glycogen granules, and occasional colloid droplets. A sparse population of functional gonadotrophs are present(indicated by immunoreactivity for ACTH, FSH, and LH).
It is an extension of the pars distalis up and around infundibulum.
