The presence of peptides and 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) in neurons and endocrine cells in the gastrointestinal tract of the spiny dogfish, Squalus acanthias, was investigated by means of immunohisto-chemistry, and the distribution of catecholamines by use of the Falck-Hillarp fluorescence-histochemical technique. Bombesin-like immunore-activity was present in numerous nerves in all layers and all parts of the gut, and also in endocrine cells in the mucosa throughout the stomach, rectum and… CONTINUE READING
