We have used immunochemical, chromatographic, and bioassay techniques to characterize peptides related to gastrin and CCK, from the stomach of the reptile Crocodylus niloticus. By immunocytochemistry gastrin/CCK-like peptides were localized in specific mucosal cells of the pylorus and in the duodenum. Boiling water extracts of pyloric antrum cross reacted(More)
Serotonin-immunoreactive, i.e. enterochromaffin (EC) cells were found to be widely distributed in the intestine of the newly hatched chick but sparse in the stomach, and being particularly abundant in the duodenum, upper ileum and rectum. Although in birds, as in mammals, EC cells are most abundant in the intestine, in the stomach they are far sparser than(More)

Two- to ten-somite chick embryos were studied in order to ascertain whether, as has been proposed, there exists a 'ventral neural ridge' which gives rise to the hypophyseal (Rathke's) pouch. Serial sections and stereo-microscopy were used. The neural ridges arch around the rostral end of the embryo onto the ventral surface of the head, but no evidence was(More)
