This study aimed to reveal if NeuN, a neuronal nuclei (NeuN) antibody, is a selective marker of intrinsic primary afferent neurons (IPANs) in the guinea-pig gastrointestinal tract as previously hypothesised. The NeuN immunoreactivity was found in the enteric nervous system with exception of the esophagus. Two groups of NeuN-expressing neurons were observed:(More)
In the present study, the effect of intestinal schistosomiasis on the extrinsic sensory innervation of the murine ileum was investigated. Immunocytochemical techniques to localize calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), substance P (SP), and vanilloid receptor 1 (VR1) were combined with retrograde tracing techniques and capsaicin treatment.
