The innervation of the rat ventral prostate was studied at the ultrastructural level. The nerve fascicles, amyelinics, are found in the interstitial tissue of the gland. We have observed varicosities with synaptic vesicles in close contact with the smooth muscle and epithelial cells. Inside the nerve endings, 5 types of vesicles could be distinguished. The(More)
Monoamine oxidase (MAO) and alcohol dehydrogenase (AD) activities were studied histochemically in the Syrian hamster Harderian gland using tryptamine as substrate and Nitroblue Tetrazolium as the final electron acceptor. No dark: light-related changes were observed. Male type I secretory cells showed an intense MAO reaction. Female type I cells exhibited a(More)
We studied the cholinergic innervation of the prostate in male albino rats using a technic for demonstrating acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity. We observed AChE-positive nerve fibers surrounding the acini and blood vessels. In the prostatic ventral lobe, a large number of AChE-reactive neurons (isolated or forming microganglia) were observed. However, no(More)
