Insulin, glucagon, pancreatic polypeptide (PP), peptide tyrosine tyrosine (PYY), somatostatin (SST)-28 (1-12), salmon (s) SST-25, and SST-14 immunoreactivities were demonstrated in the pancreatic endocrine cells of Xenopus laevis using light and electron microscopic immunocytochemistry. Insulin-, SST-28 (1-12)/SST-14-, and PYY-immunoreactive (ir) cells were found throughout the pancreas either isolated in small clusters of a single cell type or, except in the case of PYY-ir cells, forming… CONTINUE READING
