Moderately low-protein diets lead to a rapid increase in food intake and body fat. The increase in feeding is associated with a decrease in the concentration of serum urea nitrogen, suggesting that the low-protein-induced increase in food intake may be related to the decreased metabolism of nitrogen from amino acids. We hypothesized that low dietary protein(More)
The development and distribution of substance P (SP) immunoreactivity were studied in the spinal cord and ganglia of embryonic and newly hatched chick by using the indirect immunofluorescence method. Substance P immunoreactivity was first detected in the spinal cord at embryonic stages 18-20 (incubation day 3). Before stage 32 (day 7), it was mainly found(More)
The development and distribution of methionine-enkephalin-immunoreactive elements were studied in the chicken spinal cord with the indirect immunofluorescence method. Methionine-enkephalin-like immunoreactivity was first detected in the chick spinal cord at embryonic stages 29-30 (incubation day 6). Before stage 35 (day 9), it was mainly observed in fibres(More)
The distribution of substance P (SP) and vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) was investigated by immunohistochemistry in the adult chicken spinal cord. By using colchicine treatment, populations of neurons containing either SP or VIP was observed in several regions of the spinal cord. SP neurons were found dorsal to the central canal (CC) and in lamina(More)
The distribution and development of vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) immunoreactive elements were studied in the spinal cord of embryonic and newly hatched chicks with the indirect immunofluorescence method. VIP neurons were first detectable in the presumed dorsal horn at stages 27-28 (incubation day 5). Subsequently they increased in number, and by(More)
