Using immunohistochemistry and radioimmunoassay, substance(s) related to the amphibian octapeptide xenopsin (XP) were demonstrated in the gastric mucosa of humans and dogs. Immunohistochemistry localized XP-immunoreactive epithelial cells in the gastric antral mucosa. The reaction was abolished by preabsorption of the antiserum with XP but not by… CONTINUE READING
