Enteric nerves harbour a wide array of neuropeptides playing a key role in the regulation of gastrointestinal tract functions. In this study, the distribution patterns of cocaine- and amphetamine-regulated transcript-immunoreactive (CART-IR) nerve fibres as well as the percentages of CART-positive enteric neurons were immunohistochemically assessed in the(More)
Galanin exerts its biological activities (inhibitory or excitatory) via three different G protein-coupled receptors. In the present study, double immunocytochemical labeling was used to localize GAL-R1, GAL-R2 and GAL-R3 on PGP 9.5-positive myenteric neurons from the dog and sheep stomach/forestomachs. In both species, the occurrence of galanin in neurons(More)
Enteric neurons are able to alter their neurotransmitter content during adaptation to new artificial conditions. The aim of the present study was to investigate changes in vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP), substance P (SP) and galanin expression during culture of myenteric neurons from the ovine abomasum. In order to accurately reflect the in vivo(More)
