Abstract: Isolated parathyroid glands from adult female golden hamsters were incubated on a black Millipore filter in an incubation vessel containing Ham's F-12 medium, with or without melatonin at final concentration of 10-5 M for 1 hour. In the parathyroid glands used for in vitro treatments with melatonin, the Golgi complexes associated with a few prosecretory granules and cisternae of the rough endoplasmic reticulum showed a significant decrease, and lipid droplets and lysosomes appeared to be increased compared with those of the control parathyroid glands. These changes are considered to be induced by suppression of the synthesis of parathyroid hormone in parathyroid glands incubated in a vessel containing medium with melatonin.
