Cholinergic structures in the arm of the cephalopod Octopus vulgaris were studied by immunohistochemistry using specific antisera for two types (common and peripheral) of acetylcholine synthetic enzyme choline acetyltransferase (ChAT): antiserum raised against the rat common type ChAT (cChAT), which is cross-reactive with molluscan cChAT, and antiserum(More)
Intestinal motility disorders are an important problem in the postoperative management of patients with intestinal atresia. Intestinal motility could be initiated by luminal factors that activate intrinsic and extrinsic primary afferent nerves involved in the peristaltic reflex. Endocrine cells act as a key point, because they transfer information regarding(More)
The peptide guanylin, first isolated from rat small intestine, is involved in the regulation of water–electrolyte transport between the intracellular and extracellular compartments of the epithelia. The main sites of guanylin expression are the intestinal, airway, or exocrine gland ductal epithelia where guanylin acts in a paracrine/luminocrine fashion.(More)
