Distribution of neuronal melanocortins in the spadefoot toad Spea multiplicata and effects of stress.

Abstract

We examined the effects of an acute stressor on regional alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alphaMSH) content in the New Mexican spadefoot toad, Spea multiplicata. We first used immunocytochemistry along with radioimmunoassay (RIA) to examine the distribution of pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) neurons in the brain of Spea. Neurons immunoreactive for alphaMSH… (More)
