Localization of enkephalin- and neurotensin-like immunoreactivities in cat adrenal medulla

Enkephalin (ENK)- and neurotensin (NT)-immunoreactivities (IR) were localized in cat adrenal medulla using immunocytochemistry. ENK was localized mainly in adrenaline cells, 70%–80% of which were heavily labelled. About 5%–10% of the noradrenaline cells were ENK-immunoreactive (IR). A dense network of ENK-IR nerves was localized among adrenaline cells. NT… CONTINUE READING
