The complementary DNA encoding pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP) has been cloned from two species of teleost fishes, the Sockeye salmon and the Thai catfish, and the amino acid sequence of PACAP has been determined in another teleost, the stargazer. However, to date, the detailed distribution of PACAP immunoreactivity has never been investigated in the fish brain. In the present study, we have determined the localization of PACAP-immunoreactive neurons in the central… CONTINUE READING
