Human carotid bodies, removed at routine necropsies, have been subjected to radioimmunoassay for various peptides. Average levels of immunoreactivity, expressed in pm/g, were: met-enkephalin 612, leu-enkephalin 162, bombesin 73, neurotensin 67, VIP 9 and substance P 16. No alpha-hANP immunoreactivity could be detected.
