Distribution of adrenomedullin-containing perivascular nerves in the rat mesenteric artery.

Distribution of adrenomedullin (AM)-containing perivascular nerve fibers was studied in rat mesenteric arteries. Many fibers containing AM-like immunoreactivity (LI) were observed in the adventitia. AM-LI fibers were abolished by cold storage denervation or capsaicin but not 6-hydroxydopamine. Double immunostainings showed colocalization of AM-LI with… CONTINUE READING
