The presence and distribution of cholecystokinin (CCK)/gastrin-like immunoreactive (IR) material were examined in the goldfish brain and gut. In the forebrain, CCK/gastrin-like IR fibers and perikarya were localized to nuclei of predominantly the ventral telencephalon and diencephalon; more dorsal forebrain regions contained only few, thin-beaded, sparsely distributed IR fibers. CCK/gastrin-like IR was specifically detected in the preoptic hypothalamus, including the nucleus entopeduncularis… CONTINUE READING
