Light micrograph at 700x magnification of an area of the pars distalis, the anterior part of the adenohypophysis (H&E stain). The adenohypophysis is a glandular lobe of the pituitary gland, an endocrine gland attached to the base of a vertebrate brain, that secretes many hormones. Acidophils, cells easily stained with acid dyes, are stained a bright red; basophils, cells with granules that stain easily with basic dyes, have a reddish-blue cytoplasm; and the cytoplasm of the chromophobes, cells that do not stain easily, is unstained or only lightly stained.
