Quantitative immunohistochemistry was used to study the innervation of the ureter in adult rats pretreated with capsaicin as neonates (50 mg/kg) or as adults (100-150 mg/kg, 10-22 days prior to being killed) using antibodies against protein gene-product 9.5, neuron-specific enolase, substance P, calcitonin gene-related peptide, neuropeptide Y, dopamine-beta-hydroxylase and vasoactive intestinal polypeptide. The number of calcitonin gene-related peptide- and substance P-containing fibres was… CONTINUE READING
