The images depict double immunofluorescence staining, revealing the deposition of type III collagen (left: red) and the presence of desmin-positive pericytes (right: red) in cultured rat anterior pituitary cells in the presence of S100β-expressing folliculostellate cells (green). Removal of folliculostellate cells resulted in lower collagen synthesis and fewer desmin-positive pericytes. From Tsukada et al. 2016 Journal of Endocrinology 229 159–170.
