VIP- and substance P-like immunoreactivities were found in considerable concentrations (VIP: 17.3±4.8 pmol/g, mean ± SEM; substance P:11.1±1.8 pmol/g) in the uveal portion of the guinea pig eye.d Immunocytochemistry localised these two regulatory peptides to nerve fibres found principally in a plexus in the iris (substance P) and in an extensive network surrounding the blood vessels of the choroid (VIP). A remarkable anatomical demarcation of the two types of peptide-containing nerves was… CONTINUE READING
