A proctolin (PROC)-like peptide was studied immunohistochemically in the hypothalamus, lower brainstem and spinal cord of the rat using an antiserum against PROC conjugated to thyroglobulin. Neuronal cell bodies containing PROC-like immunoreactivity (PROC-LI) were observed in the dorsomedial, paraventricular and supraoptic nuclei of the hypothalamus and in the nucleus raphe magnus, nucleus raphe pallidus, nucleus raphe obscurus and nucleus interfascicularis nervi hypoglossi in the medulla… CONTINUE READING
