A comparative survey of the type of sympathetic neuro-melanophore transmission in catfishes.

Abstract

The types of innervation to integumental melanophores were surveyed comparatively within the order Siluriformes. In fish or many families, pigment aggregation within melanophores was found to be under the control of adrenergic sympathetic postganglionic fibers as in other fish. In silurid catfish, on the other hand, the cells were found to be regulated… (More)
