The anatomy of neuropeptide-y-containing neurons in rat brain
The distribution of neuropeptide Y in the central nervous system of adult male rats was investigated using indirect immunofluorescence, the peroxidase-antiperoxidase technique and by radioimmunoassayExpand

alpha-Melanocyte stimulating hormone: immunohistochemical identification and mapping in neurons of rat brain.
alpha-Melanocyte stimulating hormone (alpha-melanotropin) immunofluorescence was observed in rat brain by means of a highly specific and well-characterized antibody. The hormone was contained inExpand

The opiomelanotropinergic neuronal and endocrine systems
Abstract Opiomelanotropinergic cells in the intermediate lobe of the pituitary and in neurons in the brain secrete at least 7 peptides related to melanocyte stimulating hormone (MSH) and β-endorphinExpand

Lithium increases serotonin release and decreases serotonin receptors in the hippocampus.
The effects of long-term lithium administration on pre- and postsynaptic processes involved in serotonergic neurotransmission were measured in rat hippocampus and cerebral cortex. Long-term lithiumExpand

Substance P as a baro- and chemoreceptor afferent neurotransmitter: Immunocytochemical and neurochemical evidence in the rat
The possibility that substances P (SP) is a neurotransmitter of baro- and chemoreceptor afferents in the rat was investigated. SP-like immunoreactivity (SP-I) was analyzed quantitatively byExpand

Characterization and autoradiographic localization of multiple tachykinin binding sites in gastrointestinal tract and bladder.
Binding sites for the [125I]Bolton-Hunter-labeled tachykinins substance K (BHSK), eledoisin (BHE) and substance P (BHSP) were investigated using crude membrane suspensions and autoradiography. InExpand

Localization of neuropeptide Y messenger ribonucleic acid in rat and mouse brian by in situ hybridization
The distribution of neuropeptide Y (NPY) messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) in the rat and mouse brain has been examined. A 28‐mer oligonucleotide probe complementary to a distinctive region of NPYExpand

Novel pharmacology of substance K-binding sites: a third type of tachykinin receptor.
The tachykinins are a family of peptides with the carboxyl terminal amino acid sequence Phe-X-Gly-Leu-Met-NH2. Three major mammalian tachykinins have been identified--substance K, neuromedin K, andExpand

The distribution of corticotropin releasing factor-like immunoreactive neurons in rat brain
Using the indirect immunofluorescent technique, corticotropin releasing factor (CRF)-like immunoreactive nerve fibers and cell bodies were observed to be widely distributed in rat brain. A detailedExpand

A comparison of the anatomical distribution of substance P and substance P receptors in the rat central nervous system
A comparison of anatomical distributions of substance P (SP) and substance P receptors in the rat central nervous system was performed. SP was localized by microdissection and radioimmunoassay and SPExpand
