Immunohistochemical expression of G protein α-subunit isoforms in rat and monkey Merkel cell-neurite complexes

Abstract

The true function of Merkel cells (MCs) is still enigmatic, though the localization of various kinds of neurotransmitter-like substances in MCs has been revealed by immunohistochemistry. Most of the neurotransmitters act on target cells via seven-transmembrane receptors coupled to heterotrimeric G proteins. The heterotrimeric G proteins include various… (More)
