Adult pituitary stem cells: do they exist and what is their role in normal function and pathology? Recent studies now provide compelling evidence of their presence and contribution to both health and disease. However the pool of progenitor/stem cells is not the sole source for cell regeneration in adult pituitary since self-duplication of differentiated cells also exists.
