Morphological and chemical identification of neurons that project from the colon to the inferior mesenteric ganglia in the guinea-pig.
Time course of Fos and Fras expression in the hypothalamic supraoptic neurons during chronic osmotic stimulation.
Distribution of enteric nerve cells that project from the small intestine to the coeliac ganglion in the guinea-pig.

Kakkonto has immunosuppressive effects and interferes with the infiltration of mucosal mast cells in the colons of mice with induced food allergy, leading to improvement of allergic symptoms.
Location of sensory nerve cells that provide calbindin-containing laminar nerve endings in myenteric ganglia of the rat esophagus.
Motor innervation by enteric nerve fibers containing both nitric oxide synthase and galanin immunoreactivities in the striated muscle of the rat esophagus
The NOS/galanin fibers are deduced to originate from ganglia in the esophageal wall, supported by the observation of numerous NOS-immunoreactive nerve cell bodies in the myenteric ganglia of the Esophagus, which were galanin immunoreactive.
Immunohistochemical features of substance P-immunoreactive chromaffin cells and nerve fibers in the rat adrenal gland.
Investigation in the rat adrenal gland at the light microscopic level revealed that the SP-immunoreactive chromaffin cells also exhibit immunoreactivities for calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), and neuropeptide tyrosine (NPY), suggesting that these peptides can also be released from the chromAffin cells by certain stimuli.
Evidence for the coexistence of acetylcholine and enkephalin in the sympathetic preganglionic neurons of rats
Role of Nociceptors/Neuropeptides in the Pathogenesis of Visceral Hypersensitivity of Nonerosive Reflux Disease
These findings suggest that visceral hypersensitivity in NERD patients is involved in neurogenic inflammation showing the increase in both substance P release and NK1R expression, which may be associated with the activation of TRPV1 and PAR2.
