The distribution and morphology of gut endocrine cells, which are immunoreactive to crustacean hyperglycaemic hormone (CHH) and the corresponding precursor-related peptide (CPRP), have been described in the shore crab Carcinus maenas. The cells are uniquely distributed throughout the fore- and hindgut, but were never observed in the midgut or associated caeca. Expression of CHH and CPRP in the gut endocrine cells is generally restricted to premoult, although small numbers of immunoreactive… CONTINUE READING
