Although neuroanatomical and neurophysiological features of neurons in the ferret trachea have been studied, the neural mediators associated with this plexus have not been completely characterized. The purpose of this study was to examine the occurrence of choline acetyltransferase (ChAT), nitric oxide synthase (NOS), vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP), and substance P(SP) in the intrinsic neurons of this plexus. The distribution of double- and triple-labeled neurons was quantified in cryostat… CONTINUE READING
