Visualization of the tyraminergic innervation of the oviducts was demonstrated by immunohistochemistry, and the presence of tyramine was confirmed using high-performance liquid chromatography coupled to electrochemical detection. Oviducts incubated in high-potassium saline released tyramine in a calcium-dependent manner. Stimulation of the oviducal nerves also resulted in tyramine release, suggesting that tyramine might function as a neurotransmitter/neuromodulator at the locust oviducts… CONTINUE READING
