Helodermin, a VIP/secretin-like peptide, was first isolated from the venom of the lizard Gila monster. Small amounts of helodermin-like peptides have since been detected in many mammalian tissues. Notably high concentrations were demonstrated in the thyroid gland, and immunocytochemical studies revealed intense helodermin-like immunostaining in thyroid C cells and medullary thyroid carcinoma cells. In the present study, we examined the adrenal gland of mouse, rat and pig for the presence of… Expand
