Characterisation of neurons expressing calbindin immunoreactivity in the ileum of the unweaned and mature sheep

We have identified the enteric neuron types expressing immunoreactivity for the calcium-binding protein calbindin D28k (CALB) in cryostat sections and whole-mount preparations of myenteric (MP) and submucosal (SMP) plexuses of sheep ileum. We wished to determine whether CALB-IR in the sheep enteric nervous system was expressed in Dogiel type II cells, as in… CONTINUE READING
