Adrenomedullin (AM) immunoreactive cells have been identified, by immunocytochemical methods, in the endocrine pancreas of seven nonmammalian vertebrate species, belonging to the cartilaginous and bony fish, amphibian, reptilian, and bird classes. The frequency and distribution of the pancreatic AM cells vary among the different animals. In most species, these cells are found scattered mainly among the exocrine component, with a few present in the islet-like structures. The distribution of AM… CONTINUE READING
