Calcium-binding protein and some neuropeptides in the retina of Octopus vulgaris: A morpho-histochemical study.

Abstract

The existence of both calcium-binding proteins (CBPs) and neuropeptides in the retina and brain of various species of vertebrates and invertebrates is well documented. Octopus retina is particularly interesting because it represents a case of convergent evolution. The aim of this study was to characterize the distribution of two CBPs, calretinin and… (More)
