Enteric neuronal plasticity is probably fundamental in order to withstand injury or changes in intestinal activity. The role of the neuropeptides in neuroprotection is still enigmatic. The expression of galanin and vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) and the effects of the two peptides on survival of small intestinal porcine myenteric neurons cultured for 6 days were studied. Immunocytochemistry and cell counting were used to evaluate the numbers of surviving neurons and their expression of… CONTINUE READING
