Four classes of neurons were identified in both juxta-jejunal and juxta-rectal ganglia of Remak's nerve of the domestic fowl using double-labeling immunohistochemistry. Neurons immunoreactive (IR) for tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) formed a mutually exclusive subpopulation from neurons displaying calbindin (CaBP)-IR. Between 48-72% of juxta-jejunal neurons labeled for TH whereas 36-57% of juxta-rectal neurons displayed TH-IR. CaBP-IR was present in 18-40% of juxta-jejunal neurons; this increased to… CONTINUE READING
