Histology demonstrated chromaffin cells in the head kidney and opisthonephros of the sea bass. Immunohistochemistry showed the catecholamine-synthesizing enzymes tyrosine hydroxylase and dopamine beta-hydroxylase in these cells. Phenlethanolamine N-methyltransferase was detected in a fraction of the chromaffin cells in the head kidney (59%) and in the opisthonephros (54%). Distinct noradrenaline- and adrenaline-synthesizing cells are therefore suggested. Ultrastructural analysis confirmed the… CONTINUE READING
