Anti-thyroxine (T4) immunostaining in the endostyle and thyroid tissue during metamorphosis of sea lamprey Petromyzon marinus suggested that T4 synthesis occurs on the luminal surface of the apical membrane of selected cells of the endostyle, and that a ‘classical’ endocrine thyroid function was only evident in post-transformed animals.
