The distribution of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP)-, vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP)-, and somatostatin (SOM)-like immunoreactivities (-LI) in neurons of the spinal cord of developing chickens was characterized by use of the indirect immunofluorescence technique, and the findings related to a possible role for these peptides in the development of muscles and motor endplates. CGRP-LI in presumptive motoneurons of the ventral horn was first observed at embryonic day 6. During the… CONTINUE READING
