A-like immunoreactivity in the nervous system and gut of the larval midge Chironomus riparius : modulation of hindgut motility , rectal K + transport and implications for exposure to salinity

Abstract

Evidence for the presence of allatostatin (AST) Alike neuropeptides in the larval midge Chironomus riparius is reported. Immunohistochemical studies on the nervous system and gut revealed the presence of AST Alike immunoreactive (ASTIR) cells and processes. The nerve cord contained ASTIR processes that originated from cells in the brain and travelled the… (More)
