The innervation of rat and guinea pig urinary tract was examined using immunohistochemistry, radioimmunoassay and True Blue retrograde tracing techniques and was further assessed following both surgical and chemical denervation experiments. Substantial amounts of calcitonin gene-related peptide-like immunoreactivity (range 20-150 pmol/g) were detected in tissue extracts and localised to nerve fibres distributed throughout the urinary tract of both species, these being concentrated in the ureter… CONTINUE READING
