The present study demonstrated the three-dimensional architecture of peri-insular nerve plexuses in the murine pancreas by the combined use of light microscopy of S-100 immunostained sections, transmission electron microscopy (TEM) of thin sections, and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) of KOH digested tissues. By light microscopy of thin sections immunostained with anti-S-100 antibody, Schwann cells were often found on the margin of the islets as if delimiting the islet and exocrine… CONTINUE READING
