Co-existence of the enkephalinergic system and the melanotropinergic system in the rat duodenum shown by immunohistochemistry.

Abstract

The immunohistochemical distribution of alpha-melanotropin (alpha-MSH) and Met-enkephalin (Met-ENK) immunoreactivities in the rat duodenum was examined by using immunofluorescence microscopy. Alternately staining of adjacent frozen serial sections with specific antisera directed to alpha-MSH or Met-ENK revealed that within a subpopulation of myenteric… (More)
