Our previous studies have demonstrated the presence of a considerable number of substance P-, calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP)-, and galanin-like immunoreactive (LI) nerve fibers in the anterior pituitary in several mammalian species. The present study investigated the ultrastructure of the CGRP-LI innervation of this gland in the dog. The CGRP-LI… CONTINUE READING
