Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) has been found in nerves that innervate the rat ovary. In this study we used indirect immunohistochemical methods to investigate the normal distribution of CGRP-immunoreactive fibers in the prepubertal rat ovary and to determine the route by which these fibers reach the gland. Additional experiments were performed to(More)
Sympathetic chain ganglia (SChG) neurons projecting to the descending colon of the pig were studied by means of retrograde tracing (Fast Blue, FB) and double-labelling immunofluorescence methods. FB was injected into the gut wall and after three weeks survival time the animals were transcardially perfused with paraformaldehyde and the bilateral sympathetic(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the anatomical relationships of perikarya and fibers containing neuropeptide Y (NPY) and luteinizing-hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) in the hypothalamus and preoptic region of female rats. In view of our previous report of stimulatory effects of estrogen on LHRH and NPY levels in the median eminence, animals were(More)
Results from a previous report demonstrate that more than one molecular form of neuropeptide Y-like peptide may be present in the islet organ of the anglerfish (Lophius americanus). Most of the neuropeptide Y-like immunoreactive material was anglerfish peptide YG, which is expressed in a subset of islet cells, whereas an additional neuropeptide Y-like(More)
