The enteric nervous system (ENS) of the locust consists of four ganglia (frontal and hypocerebral ganglion, and the paired ingluvial ganglia) located on the foregut, and nerve plexus innervating fore- and midgut. One of the major neurotransmitters of the ENS, serotonin, is known to play a vital role in gut motility and feeding. We followed the anatomy of(More)
Motility of enteric plexus neurons in the grasshopper Locusta migratoria depends critically on the NO/cGMP signaling cascade. This is reflected in a strong NO-dependent cGMP staining in migrating enteric midgut neurons. In contrast, first cGMP immunoreactivity (cGMP-IR) in the foregut enteric ganglia was detected clearly after the main migratory processes(More)
