As part of a program to explore patterns of innervation by nociceptor-related thin sensory axons in a variety of peripheral regions, we have labeled calcitonin gene-related peptide immunoreactive (CGRP-IR) nerve fibers in whole mounts of rat testicular tunica vasculosa and cornea. Efforts were undertaken to visualize the numerically significant fluoride-resistant acid phosphatase (FRAP)-containing axon population, whose peripheral endings have heretofore remained undemonstrable due to technical… CONTINUE READING
