The distribution of Phe-Met-Arg-Phe-NH2 (FMRFamide)-like immunoreactive peptides was investigated in the brain of the antarctic icefish, Chionodraco hamatus, using the indirect immunofluorescence technique. Three main groups of immunoreactive perikarya were respectively localized in the nucleus entopeduncularis of the telencephalon, the nucleus preopticus periventricularis of the hypothalamus, and within the nucleus oculomotorius of the mesencephalon. Delicate FMRFamide positive nerve fibers… CONTINUE READING
