We previously reported the existence of motilin receptors in the cerebellum of the rabbit. We now explored the existence of motilin receptors in other brain regions and determined their association with neurons by subcellular fractionation studies. Autoradiographic studies with [(125)I]nle13-porcine motilin on rabbit coronal brain sections revealed specific binding sites in the hippocampus, thalamus, hypothalamus and amygdaloid body. Receptor binding studies allowed the identification of two… CONTINUE READING
