Pancreatic polypeptide (PP) immunoreactivity (IR) has been identified, quantified, and subsequently chemically characterised in the parasitic platyhelminth, Diclidophora merlangi, and its specific teleostean host the whiting, Merlangius merlangus. Immunocytochemistry demonstrated PP-IR throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems of the parasite… CONTINUE READING
