Immunocytochemical localization of peptides in the endocrine pancreas of the snakes Vipera aspis and Natrix maura.

Abstract

The endocrine pancreas of Vipera aspis and Natrix maura has been investigated by immunocytochemistry for the presence of six peptides reported to occur in Mammals or in Reptiles. Gastrin/CCK and PP were absent in the endocrine cells, VIP was located within nerve terminals only. Insulin, Glucagon, and Somatostatin were localized both in Vipera and Natrix… (More)
