The distribution of cholecystokinin-like immunoreactivity was studied in the central nervous system of the heteropteran insect Triatoma infestans using high-sensitivity immunocytochemistry. In the protocerebrum, CCK-IR somata were observed in the anteromedial, anterolateral and posterior cell-body layers. The neuropils displayed different densities of immunoreactive neurites. Few immunoreactive somata were found in the optic lobe in both the medial and lateral soma rinds, as well as in the… CONTINUE READING
